The two classes of Architecture I students went on the annual all-day field trip to the World Trade Center site organized by Architecture and Visual Arts Teacher Emily Wilson. The Architecture I students had a private tour of the Skyscraper Museum and gave presentations on their research projects of early NYC skyscrapers.
Lotus Do's Watercolor class and Emily Wilson's Art History class joined together to take a field trip to Philadelphia to see the Barnes Collection and the Terracotta Soldiers exhibit at the Franklin Institute. The students learned about Barnes' collection and viewed his vast collection of Impressionist and Modern Art in the relatively new museum designed by NYC Architects Williams and Tsien. The students enjoyed a private tour of the Barnes Collection as well independent time to view and sketch the impressive collection. After the Barnes, the students enjoyed the exhibit/IMAX theater on the Terracotta soldiers at the Franklin Institute.
