An Island of Lighting:
Two Buildings at Cornell Tech

Join us for an exterior walk around NYC's newest nod to high tech. Cornell Tech's The House is a beacon of lighting sustainability and innovation, and is the tallest Passive House in the world. The design creates an energetic home base that reinforces the social and intellectual connectivity at the heart of the campus.

The Bloomberg Center is an academic building with a refined energy consciousness and cost-savvy lighting design. The design hinges around a linear building format, porous vertical volumes, selective undulating design elements, and artwork commissioned for selected spaces.
