As means to facilitate cross pollination of thought and ideas between selected Columbia New York faculty and global thought leaders; artists, composers, architects, writers, a new institute based in Paris was established in 2018.

PATH was commissioned to create a website for the institute that encouraged applications for the fellowship and promote the activities of the institute to a global audience. A clarity of design was vital to convey their ethos of knowledge formation and continuing academic interrogation, referring back to the established and world renowned Columbia University New York while providing a new a separate foundation for a European centre of excellence in thought and creativity.
