EDITOR’S NOTE:
On NYU’s growing campus in Brooklyn, its students, researchers, and world-class faculty are working at the intersection of technology, emerging media and the arts in ever-expanding spaces where engineers and artists work side by side creating new fields of study, driving the economy of tomorrow, and enhancing the human experience. Facilities that encourage this collaboration at NYU’s new 370 Jay Street building include media commons, audio labs, motion-capture labs, virtual reality rooms, black boxes, recording studios, maker spaces as well as performance opportunities, and an exhibition hall—all placed together to deliberately accelerate innovation. Collaborations among the Center for Urban Science and Progress and the faculty and students from the Tisch School of the Arts, the Tandon School of Engineering, and the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development nurture an environment that open up unique and interesting research.
