Breathtaking Cornell Tech campus on a New York island
The new campus of Cornell Tech sits on the southern side of New York’s Roosevelt island. This campus embodies the future of academic architecture.
Cornell Tech’s overall masterplan, devised by SOM Architects, spreads over 12.4 acres. The campus sits above the 100-year and 500-year floodplains to combat rising sea levels and potential natural disasters.
The plan was also designed with an overall flexibility to allow for necessary changes as the institution continues to grow and the campus with it.
The campus of Cornell Tech contains three distinct buildings designed by individual firms.
