The 2009 Design Workshop undertook the complete renovation and transformation of the design studios of the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School for Design. This work entailed rethinking the nature of the design studio in the 21st century using the second and third floors of 25 e. 13th street as a testing ground. The entire project was design and built by students of the School of Constructed Environments, working closely with a client group composed of faculty, administrators and alumni of The New School. This project paralleled the forming of the School of Constructed Environments in 2008 with the joining together of the disciplines of architecture, interior design, lighting design and product design.
