Green Light for OMA-designed School of Architecture at Cornell

Plans for a new architecture school at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York have been 10 years in the making- from the initial master planning in 1997 to the current revised Koolhaas design presented to the public in September 2006. Today the project’s contentious and lengthy review process came to an end when the City of Ithaca’s Planning Board unanimously approved the project’s final site plan, meaning construction can begin.

The plan for Milstein Hall calls for a 59,000 square foot building with a dramatic cantilever that will unite two other buildings in the College of Architecture, Art and Planning. The project also includes a parking garage that will provide 199 spaces.

No date has yet been set for groundbreaking.
