SoAD Covid-19 Response

Jul 22, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, NYIT School of Architecture & Design
has resoundingly joined together in a collective endeavor to make PPE
for hospitals and healthcare workers. Dean Maria Perbellini had
mobilized the SoAD to partner with NYIT COM, CAS, and CoECS under the
coordination of VP Suzanne Musho in production and distribution efforts.
Dean Perbellini leads the SoAD team volunteering to 3D print and 2D
laser cut face masks and face shields. Dustin White, Director of Digital
Technologies & Fabrication supervises Mauricio Tacoaman, who is
operating in our Long Island FabLab, while Associate Professor Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa
and several Thesis students, including Ari Begun, Peter Leonardi,
Alexandra Panichella, Karina Pena, and Benjamin Sather, are remotely
engaged with design ideas and the fabrication of 3D printed face masks
and shields’ components. We are immensely proud of our students and
grateful for their commitment to this initiative. As production ramps up
in our Ed Hall FabLab, we will produce approximately 1,000 face shields
per week.
