Sage students had a great field trip to The FOCUS (Future of Cities and Urban Spaces) Lab, a new exhibition space in downtown Troy that showcases sustainable urban design solutions. The lab is run by the Future of Small Cities Institute in collaboration with the Children’s Museum at Saratoga, the City of Troy, the Downtown Troy BID, CASE, Siemens, and the RPI School of Architecture.  We were the first school group invited to tour the exhibit, “To Flow Both Ways: The Past, Present, and Future of Hudson Waterfronts,” and engage in Hands-On investigations of the Hudson River and its watershed.
