Columbia Graduate Students and a reimagined Newburgh

Posted in Creative Class, On The Waterfront: newburgh News, Video | Last Updated April 6, 2020

Columbia University Graduate Students in the school’s Urban Design Studio, are architects enrolled in a program which weaves together the disciplines of architecture and urban design. Using cities as real life labs regionality, history, and infrastructure are studied in order to consider potential urban design and its impact.

Newburgh was chosen as such a city in 2014, and just a little over a year ago, after spending time onsite in  Newburgh, and interviewing city residents,  the Columbia graduate students presented their visions of  a reimagined Newburgh as a food hub. Using  hi-tech GIS maps, and video authoring tools, as well as paper and pen, they created exciting videos which reveal the promise of Newburgh, through their eyes.

Here’s one such video, but you can also see many more here!
