  • City Works 8 is the eighth book in an annual series that documents the work produced by the students of the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York. This collection of projects in the interrelated disciplines of architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture brings together the prescient questions of environmental and social sustainability. The unique position of being a publically funded school in a diverse and didactic city provides fertile ground for exploration of the past and the future. Collaborating with educators and professionals locally and internationally allows for a perspective that is creative but grounded in solving everyday problems with precision and ingenuity. The generous studio and gallery spaces within the Spitzer School of Architecture are conducive of many large-scale installations and engaging exhibits. Student-run journals, rooftop screenings and discussions complement the lecture series sponsored by the school. This book brings together the models, drawings, research, and spirited actions of a group of designers and thinkers positioned to make significant contributions to the built environment. A collaboration between The City College of New York. Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture and Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers
