North River Roasters

North River Roasters (NRR) launched in November 2015 by Feza Oktay in downtown Poughkeepsie, NY. Oktay founded NRR to create a community supported coffee roasting program to give his members fresh, locally roasted coffee every week. He firmly believes in knowing where his coffee come from. He mainly offers Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee beans, locally roasted at the renovated Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory.

Renovated Steel Plant is Unveiled

Expansion includes a makerspace, two art galleries, and a fashion retail laboratory.

 

 

 

February 1, 2019—Marist College’s Fashion and Art & Digital Media Programs have a new home. The College’s latest building project—the renovated and expanded Steel Plant—was officially opened today in a ceremony on campus.

Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the project expanded the existing 12,000 square feet of studio and learning space with a two-story, 35,000-square-foot addition. The Steel Plant expansion is designed to match other Marist buildings with a Hudson Valley industrial-modern style, incorporating brick, steel, polished concrete, terrazzo, corrugated metal, and tile. Key spaces in the new facility include: digital labs, fashion studios, a makerspace, fashion exhibition gallery, art gallery, Mporium retail laboratory, and Winter Garden. 

“The Steel Plant represents Marist’s commitment to the art, digital media, and fashion programs,” said President David Yellen. “This stellar new facility will have a positive impact on the College for years to come, setting our students up for success by better preparing them for internships and careers in areas where art, fashion, and technology intersect.”

New York State provided nearly $3 million in grants for the project, which is expected to bolster the fashion, art, and digital media programs in both quality and scope, attracting a larger and more qualified candidate pool in related majors. Additionally, the new space and equipment will expand the application of technology in curricula across all programs, including the development of specialty courses such as MicroManufacturing and Digital Patternmaking. Students will have the opportunity for hands-on experience with a working makerspace designed to reflect those found in both the digital media and fashion industries. The new facility aligns with the College’s overall profile. Marist was recently named a Most Innovative School by U.S. News & World Report, and its Fashion Program is ranked among the top 50 such programs globally by the industry publication Business of Fashion

The state-of-the-art building also boasts key local connections as well. Several areas of construction materials were locally sourced and the café in the Steel Plant’s Winter Garden will feature products from local companies, including Poughkeepsie-based North River Roasters coffee.

Looking ahead, the College is exploring new programs in digital media, sustainability in fashion, textile design, technical/technological design, and e-commerce. “We are eager to see what possibilities exist to connect the local community to the resources in this facility,” said Executive Vice President Geoff Brackett.

Exhibitions in the fashion and art galleries will be announced in the next few weeks.

Steel plant marist

The Steel Plant Studios unifies Marist College's programs in Fine Arts, Digital Media, and Fashion, which is ranked among the best in the world. Designed to give these world-class programs world-class learning spaces, the new building comprises a renovated 12,000-square-foot historic industrial building and a 35,000-square-foot addition of flexible, light-filled studios and classrooms. The Steel Plant is a central element of Marist's master plan, bridging the College's divided campus and providing a much-needed cultural hub for the rapidly expanding East Campus.

The L-shaped addition adopts the industrial vocabulary of the original structure, with oversized factory-style windows and locally sourced, hand-made brick cladding. At the southwest and northeast corners, glass-enclosed spaces project outward from the primary brick volume, shaded by perforated aluminum screens pattered with a textile-like abstraction of the Marist order's insignia. Between the old and new volumes, the courtyard-like Winter Garden has become the heart of the building – and of East Campus, creating a sense of place and community where none previously existed. With its mix of contemporary and industrial vocabularies, there's a feeling that the addition grew over time; its intentionally accretive aesthetic alluding to the school's multi-disciplinary program. 

To support Marist's expanding curriculum, which focuses on the practical application of knowledge, the building features professional-tier maker-spaces, digital pattern-making labs, and even a new retail space. The M-Porium is a working storefront where students can gain hands-on experience displaying, marketing, and selling their work. Classrooms and studios also provide practical experiences with cutting-edge technologies and sliding walls that open to create two 70-foot long fashion runways. With its flexible spaces and infrastructure, the new building is designed to meet the needs of students today and tomorrow.
