The Bernard and Anne Spitzer Schoolof Architecture (formerly the School of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture) and Aaron Davis Hall now share a new open space on the City College of New York's Upper Manhattan Campus. A tri-cornered space shaped by these two venues and the adjacent Convent Avenue streetscape, the space is designed for two mutually reinforcing uses that can occur at different times for different sets of users. A south facing lawn provides a much needed outdoor campus space for students to gather, relax, and study. The almost ten foot change in elevation forms a natural amphitheater that allows the arts program of Aaron Davis Hall to use the space for a range of music, dance and theatre performances.
