NYSID exhibits BFA Thesis Projects

New York, NY – February, 2010 – New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) is pleased to present BFA Thesis Projects, Fall 2009, an exhibition consisting of the final projects of twelve students who finished their program in the fall semester. The exhibition will be on view at NYSID, located at 170 East 70th Street, through March 5, 2010.

The projects, which are hypothetical designs based on the adaptive re-use of existing buildings, allow the students to explore all phases of a professional project such as concept development, presentation drawings, models, and materials boards. The fall 2009 BFA candidates tackled designs for a wide range of projects including hotels, a university rowing facility, a museum, and a residence and school for mentally challenged children.

The exhibition features the work of Ilona Birnberg, Lorenzo Cota, Dita Domonkos, Jennifer E. Flynn, Andrea Harmath, Holly Hayden, Seolae Lee, Yii Ju Lin, Adriana Monge Macaya, Siobhan Munro, Hiroko Nishitani, and Nikki Stapleton

The 69th Street Gallery at New York School of Interior Design is free and open to the public Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.
