Jewish Theological Seminary

Location: New York, NY
Program: Academic and Dormitory Residential Program

Founded in 1886, the Jewish Theological Seminary is one of the premier Jewish institutions in the United States. The spiritual and academic center selected us to design a new building for its historic Morningside Heights campus, with the aim of facilitating deeper collaboration with its neighbors, city, and global community.

The new buildings will help the campus engage with the world while honoring the institution’s past and celebrating what is to come. The project will include an auditorium, a state-of-the-art residence hall, and a library to house the center’s renowned collection of rare Judaica books, manuscripts, and scrolls. Once complete, the new structure will change the lives of those who experience it by facilitating a sense of cohesion, openness, and connectivity.
