Ribbon Cutting for NYSID’s Graduate Center Oct 18th, 2011

On October 18th, NYSID alumni, faculty, staff, trustees and friends came together at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Graduate Center, a 40,000 square feet space on two contiguous floors at 401 Park Avenue South on 28th Street.  The Graduate Center, designed by Gensler, was also recently certified LEED-CI Platinum by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).

Guests were able to tour the entire space, see student work and meet the team that made it happen.  Patricia Sovern, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, gave a speech expressing her delight at the beautiful space.  She also thanked the Leadership Circle who helped make the Graduate Center a reality.  President Cyphers offered special thanks to NYSID’s partners: Amerlux Global Lighting Solutions, Capellini & the Poltrona Frau Group, Cassidy Turley New York, InterfaceFLOR, Jonathan Rose Companies, Lutron Electrics, Turner Construction and Gensler.  After the remarks, President Cyphers and Chairman Sovern cut the red ribbon.
