Archicriic Justin Davidson weighs in favorably on the choice of Thom Mayne and Morphosis to design Cornell's Roosevelt Island Campus: "The structure — and, eventually, the whole campus — will be as prominent on the East River’s skyline as the Pepsi-Cola sign, an icon of the city’s postindustrial intellectual economy?.The $100 million that the Bloomberg administration has promised to plow into the project should buy a design that helps knit Roosevelt Island into the heart of the city. That won’t be easy. On a map of New York, the island looks like it could be the city’s throbbing heart, but it’s really a blank in the middle of its consciousness." [Daily Intel; previously]
