NYIT Professor Contributes to Book on Urban Design Ecologies

Urban Design Ecologies

A new book published by Wiley, Urban Design Ecologies, features work by Giovanni Santamaria, Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of architecture. His translation from Italian of a selection of Vittorio Gregotti's 1968 tome, The Territory of Architecture, is among the essays in a section on "Megalopolis: The Nature of Sprawl," and was also part of his doctoral dissertation.

"This is an interesting chapter which, in an absolutely advanced way for its time, investigates the rule of urban design beyond the perimeter of the dense city, involving as urban matter and most of all as material for architecture, scale and specificity of landscape and geography, infrastructures and communication," Santamaria says. "Time and dimension of territory are intended as important references for understanding and designing the city in a new coherent way, considering it as complex and integrated overall system."

The book is edited by Brian McGrath and delineates a new way to look at urban structures and phenomena related to their landscapes and complex ecological values. Read more.

Online Exclusive: Modern Artifact, The Story of Aluminaire House

Aluminaire House

When the Aluminaire House was unveiled in New York City in April 1931, it was an overnight sensation that emboldened an architectural movement. Its designers went on to international fame, but the iconic structure was soon forgotten—only to be revived at intervals for the next 80 years. Over time, its fate would entwine with the impulses of a design movement, a neglected architect, and the struggle of preservationists from which NYIT professors would emerge to save it.

Congrats to NYIT's Award-Winning Eco Armatures Team

NYIT Students Present Designs

Architecture students Monique de Menezes, Saafa Alaoui, and Alexandra Aranova (pictured) impressed the judges of a Dec. 11 design competition with their vision for an entirely new urban district in a Bronx, N.Y., neighborhood in need of infrastructure renewal. As members of the first-place team Eco Armatures, they were among 65 students in the NYIT Community Design Studio whose semester-long project on the West Farms section of the Bronx culminated in presenting their designs in the juried competition, "Shaping the Split," at the Bronx Museum. Four other NYIT teams also won cash awards for their work, which featured affordable housing, commercial amenities, recreation venues, and open space.

NYIT thanks the jurors who offered their expertise for the design competition and the Friends of NYIT School of Architecture and Design for generously providing $1,500 in prize money to the award-winning student teams.
