The College of Architecture, Art, and Planning is home to almost 800 students, 100 visiting and full-time faculty dedicated to the study of the art and science of the built environment, and about 60 staff members. A small and vital college in one of the nation's foremost research universities, Cornell AAP has educated many of the most influential theorists and practitioners in the country. We are committed to the belief that architecture, art, and planning are simultaneously intellectual and material practices, and that leadership in cultural production demands both expertise in a specific discipline and wide knowledge in the liberal arts.
Cornell's Ithaca campus is the physical and academic center for Cornell AAP, but given the global nature of our interests, the college has extended its reach to include permanent programs in the historic center of Rome and in what was traditionally known as lower Manhattan's financial district area in New York City. The departments offer additional extensive opportunities for international study across the globe. In Ithaca, the college spans five buildings, including Milstein Hall, historic Sibley Hall, an 8,000-square-foot digital and analog shop facility and the Fine Arts Library in Rand Hall, Tjaden Hall, and the landmarked Foundry building.
