Fast Co. Interviews Michael Manfredi and Marion Weiss at the Bridge

Fast Company published a video interview with Michael Manfredi and Marion Weiss that focuses on how The Bridge "embodies the future of the tech industry's role in academia."

"It's in places of movement where people pause to take breaks together and have all kinds of encounters. If we were to have very narrow and efficient circulation [at The Bridge]... conversations would only happen in programmed spaces. Instead, we've relaxed all of the spaces for circulation – the possibility of letting ideas breathe through conversation is really the aspiration of the building," state Michael and Marion.

The Bridge, developed by Forest City New York, supports Cornell Tech's efforts to fuse entrepreneurial and academic ambitions on its new Roosevelt Island campus in New York City.
