The Bridge at Cornell Tech

Weiss/Manfredi Architects have reimagined an academic “co-location” building as an open connector both physically and programmatically, mixing Cornell Tech's students with entrepreneurs. With a cloven volume and an innovative facade, The Bridge is as clever a problem-solver as the tech businesses it's designed to incubate.
