Meet at Washington Square Arch, Fifth Ave. & Washington Square North
Spanning more than a century, New York University’s growth around Washington Square has followed a variety of strategies: repurposing of existing industrial buildings, incremental contextually-designed new structures, and large-scale clearance and redevelopment through urban renewal—the superblocks of which are now viewed as sites for further development. Explore examples of this growth, including notable designs by I. M. Pei, Philip Johnson, Kevin Roche, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Machado & Silvetti, Steven Holl, and Morris Adjmi.
