NYU-Poly Announces Plans To Transform Campus To “Exude” Innovation
/ January 21, 2010

Remember how, a couple summers ago, NYU absorbed Polytechnic University in Brooklyn and popped out with a new combined beast, Polytechnic Institute of New York University? Now, NYU-Poly’s President Jerry M. Hultin announced a $50 million (and more in the future) plan to renovate campus, somewhat mysteriously and nerdily titled “i2e Campus Transformation.”

“The goal now is to turn this into a campus that exudes innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship,” Hultin said yesterday at a Town Hall. Members of the firm Jonathan Rose Companies, chosen to spearhead the project, described fancy green and “form meets function” design plans, such as “data and electrical ports suspended from the ceiling, enabling students, faculty, and researchers to easily move wheeled stations as needed.” Whoa, technology.
