Architecture Students Collaborate with Habitat for Humanity to Aid Gifford Residents
College projects often stay within the confines of the classroom, but Mark Taylor’s architecture students have an opportunity to see their work directly affect a community in need. An outgrowth of a 2010 entry for the Solar Decathlon, the new project will provide energy-efficient, affordable family housing built with volunteer labor. After a November tornado severely damaged or destroyed 40 houses in Gifford, Taylor, his students, and engineering students on campus—already working in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity—shifted their focus to develop plans to suit this community. Habitat for Humanity will spearhead the construction.
Jennifer Monson’s Live Dancing Archive Named the Best Work of 2013
TimeOut New York selected Jennifer Monson’s Live Dancing Archive as the top dance work of 2013 and lauds her for being “one of New York’s finest dance artists.” Her exploration of bodies, nature, science, and art includes live performance, a video installation, and a digital archive. Monson’s research focuses on the intersection of dance and environmental studies to generate knowledge about human movement and ecological systems.
