The South Campus of the City College of New York includes a new School of Architecture, the multi-building Advanced Science Research Center, and four future sites for institutional growth on a sixteen-acre site in northern Manhattan.
Winding paths and picturesque plantings of mature deciduous and coniferous trees frame views, accentuate building edges and entrances and connect the campus to its adjacent landscape. Amphitheater seating and a sloping great lawn provide an outdoor venue for graduation ceremonies and other large-scale events at the college.
The new ASRC complex also includes a "science courtyard garden" where curvilinear forms are nested in the gentle curves of the science buildings. Here researchers, faculty, and students exchange ideas, seeking answers to some of the world’s most intractable health issues.
