Willard Straight Hall
Thread Magazine Launch Party Video
Willard Straight Hall is one of the oldest student union buildings in the United States, however, its terrace space is underutilized and not very inviting. This project started out as a simple proposal to the university and it was very well received by various departments. The pop-up event in May has been incredibly successful and we have gotten more support from the University. Over the next few months, the project will permanently develop into two phases, the first of which will add much needed furniture to the space and the second bringing updated lighting and landscaping. I have lead a team of architects, engineers, and designers in order to provide a relaxing and enjoyable space for the student body of Cornell University.
