Come join RPI Architecture students for a studio-style presentation of their work from "Imaginary Wilds" at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site. There are two sessions at 2 pm and 4 pm with receptions in between.
Under the guidance of six design studio instructors, students envisioned new buildings to house a gallery and public gathering space at the historic site’s campus. Framed by the concept of a mythic wild landscape, which was prevalent in Cole’s time and persists in ours, "Imaginary Wilds" presents a series of forward-looking designs that address real and ideal relationships between architecture and landscape.
The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is the former home of Hudson River School of Art founder, Thomas Cole. Located in the village of Catskill, the house, called Cedar Grove, and Cole's studio are open for tours, events, and workshops throughout the year.
