Fourth Year Undergraduate Design Studio
New York Institute of Technology
Fall 2005


Ronkonkoma Transit Hub, New York
The aim of the studio is to introduce students of architecture to broad planning and urban design strategies that are demonstrable at a human scale. The Community Design Studio is a unique vehicle able to influence the future development of a community. Unlike previous design studios, here you will not only visit a site but also speak with planners active in shaping land use policy in the Town of Brookhaven, Long Island. The level of investigation should become progressively more focused during the course of the semester. Thus as the design moves from the scale of the Ronkonkoma community, to the scale of a Project Area and then to an architectural scale, the level of design detail must also be enhanced.
