Sben Korsh: Architecture History

Architecture is my greatest interest. I envision submersing myself around the history and intellectual study of architecture for my life’s work.

I thought the degree would help, but through CUNY BA, I will be able to study the subjects that are central to my goals in research, writing, history and curation.

Philosophy has been a mode of thought that has captivated me since I was young. My favorite question, much to the chagrin of my parents, has always been why, why, why? Philosophy has been my escape but also a tool that animates my normal every day existence, adding color, flavor and beauty to what might become calcified, worn and routine.
