Rem Koolhaas and his team presented the design for Milstein Hall, the newest building of the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art and Planning (AAP). Groundbreaking for the 43,000-square-foot Milstein Hall will take place in 2007 directly behind Sibley Hall and adjacent to the Foundry and Rand Hall.
The new building will offer a vibrant and flexible public space, with studios, library, presentation and exhibition areas, a lobby and an auditorium/boardroom. Milstein Hall will facilitate collaboration between the departments in the already existing buildings.
Koolhaas will lead the project along with OMA Associate Shohei Shigematsu.
