Casey Danson student work 1972 – 1975

Collection, KA0117


The collection documents projects completed by Casey Coates when she was a student in Parsons School of Design's Environmental Design program between 1972 and 1975. Materials consist of sketches on tracing paper, site plans, land use, climate, and systems studies for three building projects, as well as a silent, color super-8 film capturing street life in Danson's neighborhood on the upper west side of Manhattan. Danson created the film in response to an assignment to study the effect of a man-made environment upon the people who live in it.
