ALUMNI UPDATE: Joseph “Joe” Aronson '51

After attending Cornell and Columbia Architecture Schools...

I received the Rome Prize for Environmental Design (1974), a Guggenheim Fellowship for Italian Urban Design (1976), and a Graham Foundation Grant (1981). I was a Visiting Scholar in Architecture at MIT (1995), did graphics and posters for the Italian government (Milan Trade Fair), and have prints and aerial photographs in museums and collections including the Uffizi, the Getty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the National Gallery. My current project is A Continuous Aerial Panorama of the Hudson, NYC to Albany and Back, which entailed 80 hours in a helicopter and 43,000 raw images. I’m presently logging red pines planted by my father in 1940 and milling them into timber to restore my 198-year-old house.
