Steiner Studios' new emerging media campus attempts to bring New York back into the production limelight. The key goal is the cross-pollination of ideas between producers, professionals, students, and the community.
The installation of “attractors” such as food or unique resources enables collaboration; the placement of the attractors promotes cross-pollination. These are arranged within the city, site, building, and human scales. The form is derived from the maximization of direct sunlight; optimizing solar gain and energy production of the exterior solar panel facade.
