Hana Petrik and Martin Kropac selected as the new members of the GSAPP Incubator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, a Columbia University launch pad for new ideas and projects about architecture, culture, and the city.
Drawing on GSAPP guest lecturers, discourse, and studio culture, the Incubator hosts and encourages a wide range of experiments initiated by recent GSAPP graduates. Targeted projects combine action with discussion at the levels of the university, the city, and local ways of life. They connect Columbia University to current and future issues in New York City and other global cities. They extend beyond ideas and technologies that are web-based or personal-scale, and focus on city government, infrastructure, global urban development, and local street culture.
The Incubator is anchored by alumni members and projects, but it also hosts current student and faculty projects, and it is part of a broader ecosystem of GSAPP research and production. The Incubator is located at 231 Bowery, as part of NEW INC, the world’s first museum-led incubator created by the New Museum.
