Graduates from the 1940s–onward

The College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell has a legacy of forward thinking and pedagogical innovation that informs both what we teach and how we teach creative practice and critical engagement across our disciplines. The AAP Alumni Archive came together as current students reached out to college graduates from the 1940s–onward to hear their stories and gather selections from their life's work.

About AAP Alumni Archive

The AAP Alumni Archive is a public digital repository for viewing and learning about the lives, careers, and work of graduates from the college's departments of architecture, art, and planning.

The database will provide opportunities for graduates since the 1940s, who have gone on to maintain decades-long careers rich with experience, to share selections of their work. Students and visitors to the archive will be able to draw knowledge from the in-depth profiles, and make connections across generations. 

The archive is an ongoing project that seeks to convey the range of perspectives, practices, and accomplishments of our alumni community, as well as the full arc of experience that our graduates carry from their time at AAP to their careers and lives beyond Cornell.   

Launched in 2022, the AAP Alumni Archive is supported by a generous gift from architect and alumna Mui Ho '62 (B.Arch. '66). In an interview with AAP, Ho shared her thoughts on the new archive, her architecture and teaching career, and her time at Cornell.
