Architect Thom Mayne and his firm, Morphosis Architects, have already been selected to design the first building of Cornell's Roosevelt Island science campus. But there wouldn't be any fun in leaving it at that, so via Roosevelt Islander, the above video is an alternate proposal for the Cornell Technion campus from students at Cornell's grad program in landscape architecture, real estate, and regional planning. Maybe it's just the "Ride of the Valkyries" soundtrack striking fear into our hearts, but we don't see the residents of Roosevelt Island falling in love with this plan.
