Last month, students from the past semester’s studio were asked to share their work with the Staten Island chapter of the AIA, a perfect place to show off a semester’s worth of hard work and research. Along with Professor Llonch, student’s presented their own projects, pointing to the great potential of Staten Island’s Stapelton and Tompkinsville neighborhoods as sites of increased traffic and growth.
Coming off of a great, extensive final review, it is always exciting for your project to have another life after school finals. This opportunity allowed for students to expound more upon the impact that development can have on these neighborhoods, and shed light on local community issues to a group of like-minded professionals. It will be great to see if any of their research can be taken up by local firms and put to good use.
Below, find a sampling of the students’ presentations; across the next few weeks, we will be highlighting individual projects and bringing you more work as the fall semester quickly makes it ways towards us.
