The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (@ColumbiaGSAPP) Core I Architecture Studio’s “Broadway Stories” exercise challenges first-year architecture students to develop a critical position and design a new public space (or set of them) that redefine a preexisting site. These proposals, which are developed in the form of physical models, renderings, architecture drawings, and animations, are then presented to jury of guest critics during final review week.

1. M.Arch student @AlinaAbouelenin’s proposal preserves the original façade of Hamilton Theater located in Manhattan's Hamilton Heights neighborhood while inserting additional facades into the structure to develop a narrative about the historic nature of the building and surrounding site. Completed during the Core I architecture studio led by GSAPP faculty member @AminaBlacksher.
2. M.Arch student David Musa (@story_arch) proposes inserting a sequence of public parks into an existing apartment building. A selection of the building's tenants would then be relocated into new, renovated apartment units added on top of the existing structure. Completed during the Core I architecture studio led by GSAPP faculty member Emmett Zeifman.
3. M.Arch student Alec Harris (@arec_s7) proposes an intervention on the site of Trinity Church in Lower Manhattan that uses light as a primary material. Completed during the Core I architecture studio led by GSAPP faculty member Christoph A. Kumpusch (@c_kumpusch).
