Professor di Domenico received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from The City College of New York and a Master of Architecture in Urban Design from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Rome and the recipient of private and public grants, including an NEA Design Arts grant to study the Re-Use of Urban Infrastructure. The study became one of the catalysts that helped move forward plans for the High Line Park. His professional practice, di Domenico + Partners, explores innovation and sustainability in the civic realm, and has been involved in the design of some of the most prominent new rail stations and high speed rail infrastructure, transformation of two buildings for Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the development of sustainable landscape design for the United Nations New York campus. di Domenico is also an avid painter, often creating visual commentary on current studio architecture and urban design projects. Additionally, he serves on the Board of Coney Island USA, the non-profit arts group whose goal is to “defend the honor of American pop culture” and organize the annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. Among numerous accolades, honors and publications, Professor di Domenico was most recently awarded the Sydney L. Strauss Award from the New York Society of Architects for outstanding achievement for the benefit of the architectural profession. He is presently a Professor of Architecture at NYIT, where he has also served as Dean of the School of Architecture and Design and Chair of the Architecture program.
