The School has embarked on an ambitious campaign to incorporate state-of-the-art digital technologies in the design curriculum. Since the introduction of the first “paperless” design studios on the seventh floor of Avery in the mid-nine-ties, there has been substantial annual investment and dramatic improvements in the facilities and electronic infrastructure for research, teaching, presentation, computer-aided design, and general computing at the GSAPP. Meanwhile, the general computing resources provided by the University have been upgraded as well and include a variety of e-mail and online services as well as a campus-wide wireless network.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has become an essential tool for understanding the environment. It follows that the GIS software has become an invaluable resource for both Architects and Planners in conceptualizing the built environment. Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) has recognized the ability of this technology, and has focused on developing infrastructure and research that explores new possibilities of GIS.
