The Innovative Urban Workplace: Designing for the Future at the Brooklyn Navy Yard (Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowshi)
The Innovative Urban Workplace documents the Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Architecture Fellowship studio with Abby Hamlin, founder of Hamlin Ventures, Dana Tang ('95), architect and partner at Gluckman Tang Architects, and Andrei Harwell, senior critic in architecture at Yale.
The studio investigated the role of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City in order to understand and meet the BNY's mission and design distinctive solutions that speak to the type of workplace needed in an urban development today. Students in the studio identified potential urban business models that address future relationships between places of production and consumption. They looked at comparable waterfront development projects and addressed issues including flood mitigation and environmental remediation in their proposals.
