More News on The AAP Front

While we are on the subject of the College of Art, Architecture, and Planning, there are two other items of note:

First, from the Ithaca Journal, tensions between the City of Ithaca and Cornell are heating up over Milstein Hall. Cornell is claiming that its plans are not on the table "indefinitely", and the City needs to move. The word "lawsuit" is also coming up more frequently. What fun. With the departure of Mostafavi, what are the odds of Milstein actually being built? Apparently Mostafavi was one of the only proponents of the design. Most everybody else in the faculty refused to drink the Kool-haas-aid.

Secondly, a whole bunch of architecture students are in an uproar over the proposed relocation of some studios to downtown Ithaca while renovations occur to Sibley and Rand Halls. To top it off, they were only given two weeks notice regarding the move... You can read all about it here on Facebook. Apparently the APP facilities are really crumbling, and unless renovations are not started immediately, the school runs the risk of losing its. accreditation. It doesn't sound like there is much that the college can do, as it needs to repair its physical plant, but surely only giving two weeks notice to its students may hint at some larger problems... not that we didn't already know this.

But all this news coming from AAP makes it sound like nothing else is happening on campus these days.
