IF WE DON’T THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE IN AND WITH ALL THE TRANSFORMATIVE REGIONS OF THE WORLD, THEN WE ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE.
MARK WIGLEY, DEAN, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY | GSAPP
Studio-X is a global network of advanced research laboratories for exploring the future of cities launched in 2008 by Mark Wigley, Dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. With locations in Amman, Beijing, Mumbai, New York, Rio de Janeiro and soon Moscow and Tokyo, it is the first truly global network for real-time exchange of projects, people, and ideas between regional leadership cities in which the best minds from Columbia University can think together with the best minds in Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia.
An intense collaborative workshop by day and energizing event space by night, Studio-X is a new platform for incubating conversation about the future of the built environment. Each Studio-X location generates a remarkable density of activity and is equally important. But the real energy of the network comes from the activities generated between the nodes.
Studio-X is also deeply integrated into the curriculum and research structure of all the GSAPP programs, with students and teachers having multiple opportunities to spend time working in or with any Studio-X in the global network. Equally, students, teachers and experts from each node around the world can work in or with any of the other GSAPP platforms. Studio-X therefore is not a typical university branch aiming to export leadership education and research around the globe. On the contrary, the GSAPP’s colleagues around the world are the leaders in a cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary, and cross-continental exchange within and between diverse regions.
