NYSID exhibits BFA & MFA Thesis Projects

New York, NY – June 2, 2010 – New York School of Interior Design is pleased to present BFA & MFA Thesis Projects Spring 2010, an exhibition consisting of the final projects of 27 students who finished their program in the spring semester. The exhibition will be on view in the galleries at NYSID, located at 170 East 70th Street, through July 29, 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 spring 2010 BFA and MFA candidates tackled designs for a wide range of projects including hotels, schools, retail spaces, a library, a museum inspired by a birch forest in winter and even a green crematorium.  

The exhibition features the work of BFA graduates Amanda Beatrix Buck, Kate Dombrowski, Eugenio Gonzalez, Danielle Guagliano, Michael D. Harold, Lindsay Key, Taylor Lam, Brooke Lichtenstein, Demetra Moralis, Sarah J. Muchow, Matvey A. Panov, Daniel Park, Kyla A. Pellicani, Joan J. Roncal, Elsie St. Léger, Olivia Vien, Yiannos Vrousgos, Naoko Yamazaki, Eun Seon (Christy) Yoo and Christiana Zinno

The projects of MFA graduates Hanieh Arefian, Alejandra Cesar, Darlene Mischelle John, Evgenia Nesterova, Monal Raje, Stefan Steil, and Bimo A. Wibowo are also exhibited.

The galleries at New York School of Interior Design are free and open to the public Monday – Thursday, 9am – 5pm.
