Schneider Builds Days’ End

Brett Schneider (Assistant Professor, Architecture) recent collaboration with the Whitney Museum of Art was released to the press in the last week.

The new installation is a thin frame of stainless steel pipe 8in in diameter with elements up to 65ft long.

Schneider is a Senior Associate with Guy Nordenson and Associates and as such will translate the project from sketch to built reality as the project engineer designing and detailing the installations’s structure. The project as recetly featurered in the New York Times and the New Yorker.
