School for Graduate Level Film Studies

Architect: Studio Gang Architects (Kara Boyd Design Lead and Project Architect)

Feasibility study & concept design

Housed on two out of seven floors of an historic building in the former Brooklyn Navy Yard (now film lot), this project sought to provide an affordable and immersive graduate film production education on a working professional film lot. Feasibility and concept studies were done to investigate the potential for locating the school within the existing building despite its challenging conditions. The program included highly sensitive production and post- production spaces along with classrooms and support spaces, all within a former munitions testing and storage facility.
