Sponsored by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture as a part of their project Power: Infrastructure in America, Public Works for a Green New Deal assembled a series of courses from across programs at GSAPP during the fall 2019 semester to consider the social, technical, and political contours of the ambitious—but still largely undefined—proposal known as the Green New Deal (GND). Visit our Public Works page to view the resulting student work.

Get to Know the Campus and Explore Morningside Heights

This Spring, Untapped New York – co-founded by Alumni Board Member Michelle Young (‘12 MS UP) – collaborated with Columbia GSAPP to create a mini-series of podcast episodes designed to welcome incoming students to the GSAPP family.

Throughout the series, we explore architecturally interesting and historic New York City neighborhoods that house Columbia University’s campus and surrounding communities.

Also check out their feature in Columbia Magazine Welcome to Manhattanville published in Spring 2019.

You can also find a self-guided audio walking tour of Columbia University’s historic campus by Professor and Historic Preservationist Andrew Dolkart (‘77 MS HP) here.
