Innovation at SVA
School of Visual Arts - Department of Social Innovation

The School of Visual Arts graduate departments are spread across several buildings in the Chelsea and Gramercy neighborhoods of Manhattan. Many of the programs function as small creative pods - intense and concentrated. For the Department of Social Innovation, all the functions of a graduate department had to be injected into a 5000sf floor plate. The program required an auditorium, classroom space, both quiet and social study areas, a computer lab, a sound studio, and administrative areas; a lot of stuff for a small container.

Spacesmith's design solution organizes all the functions around a circular auditorium. The intersection of strong forms lends a dynamism to each program area that, coupled with a variety of graphics and textures, projects youthful energy throughout the space. Our photographic approach looks to accentuate the juxtaposition of the rectilinear floor plate and curvilinear auditorium. By focusing views down the axes of the space, our photographs create visual correlations that relate program areas to one another, as well highlight the differences between the implementations of each program.
