Get Ready, Village: N.Y.U. Likely to Expand

New York University announced on Thursday the team that it will be using to draw up a master plan for the university’s use of space over the next 25 years, which will, it sounds like, entail some expansion.

“It’s about faculty space and classroom space,” said Kelly Franklin, an N.Y.U. spokeswoman. “In the near term, we will be looking at where opportunities are in our existing space for the better use of space."

The team will be led by SMWM, which has done planning studies for Harvard and Brown; and include Grimshaw, Toshiko Mori Architect and Olin Partnership.
