Architect Preston Scott Cohen

Members of the NYIT community attended an Oct. 18 Archtober lecture featuring award-winning architect Preston Scott Cohen, chair and Gerald M. McCue Professor of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Cohen, who runs an architecture firm in Cambridge, Mass., has led the design of critically acclaimed projects such as the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. His recent work has included a glass canopy covering an 11,000-square-foot outdoor pedestrian arcade in Battery Park City, an addition to the Manhattan landscape that the New York Times likens to "something almost as inspired as the nave of a great Gothic cathedral."

NYIT Architects Announce Kickstarter Campaign for Roofing Project

Film Festival

NYIT architecture professors and students have launched a kickstarter campaign to raise money for constructing a model of their patented water bottle roofing system, with the goal of raising $32,500 by Thursday, Nov. 15. Architecture faculty members leading the project are associate professor Michele Bertomen and assistant professors Jason Van Nest and Farzana Gandhi. Their efforts began in 2011, when the team designed a Soda Bottle Interface Bracket (short for SodaBIB), a key element of the roofing system, and NYIT later received a provisional patent for it. The team soon realized SodaBIB's potential for business partnerships and providing emergency shelter for people in developing countries. Read more.
