Curious about our neighbors across the East River—new and old? Join us on Thursday, June 14th for an evening exploring Roosevelt Island!  First, Kyle Johnson, AIA will lead a tour of the island’s Modern and Brutalist gems constructed during Roosevelt Island’s transition from an enclave of prisons and welfare services into a middle class residential community. This jaunt down Main Street will culminate in an exclusive tour of Cornell Tech, New York City’s first tech-centered university. Director of Design and Construction Diana Allegretti will lead this walking tour of the newly completed first phase of Cornell Tech’s Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and James Corner Field Operation designed masterplan, which includes buildings by acclaimed firms Morphosis, Weiss/Manfredi, and Handel Architects. Take this opportunity to explore these sustainably designed eco-friendly buildings on the lush green campus in the Upper East Side’s backyard.
