Work is fully complete on Snøhetta‘s 18-story, 224-room Graduate Hotel at 22 North Loop Road and the adjacent four-story Verizon Tech Executive Education Center on Roosevelt Island. Stonehill Taylor worked alongside Snøhetta for the Graduate Hotel, serving as the architect of record. The Graduate Hotel and the Verizon Tech Center properties are the final pieces of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed Cornell Tech master plan, which was developed by Hudson Companies, Related Companies, and Brookfield and rises south of the Queensboro Bridge’s central span. Meanwhile the main exterior of Verizon Executive Education Center features a mixture of glass and wooden louvers that start out completely closed on the eastern end and gradually open toward the western elevation, allowing for sunlight to pass through. Inside are rooms for academic conferences, executive programs, seminars, and workshops. Photographs by @mchlanglo793
