Master plan, Cornell NYC Tech campus, designed by Morphosis Architects.   

The Cornell NYC Tech campus, planned for Roosevelt Island with a 2017 debut, will combine academic/research facilities with business incubators and boasts a "lilypad" of PV cells floating five stories in the air. The design, by Morphosis Architects, is part of what will be New York City's first net-zero building, if all goes according to plan. The master plan for the full campus, now moving through the approvals process, offers facilities to be used by Cornell as well as partner institution Technion University, of Israel. The initial facility is intended to include laboratories, student work spaces, classrooms, and common areas; it is the first phase of a project that might take 25 years to build.
