Abstract is the annual print publication of faculty-selected student work from Columbia University GSAPP, produced through the Office of the Dean.


rAADio is an investigation by Advanced Architectural Design students in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. As a cohort from a plurality of diverse backgrounds, we aim to observe the many polycentric entanglements of architecture. We explore the questions of how we expand the traditional role and associations of architecture between assemblages, interrelationships, bodies, and technologies; beyond simple scalar translations.

Follow rAADio on Instagram at @gsapp_raadio.

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.
