The projects that were developed questioned the necessity of scale, site, program, form, embodiment and materiality. Open City builds on the tradition of two earlier publications entitled Education of An Architect: A Point of View and Education of an Architect , which established the internationally influential curriculum that begins with Architectonics, the structural and spatial vocabulary of architecture, and demonstrated the unique impact of that foundation on the five-year degree program at The Cooper Union.
The anthology represents drawings, models, and texts for works of civic architecture. Each of the project proposals considers the architectural memory of a given site as inspiration to the design of the structural form and the humanitarian program proposed. The introduction also includes essays by Peter Schubert and Francois de Menil. Texts by diverse contributors such as writer Fran Lebowitz, and Karen Wong, Deputy Director of the New Museum, powerfully frame the overarching philosophy of the fourth-year "Architecture of the City" studio.
Here, the form of the city is based in the invention and the art of siting singularly authored, poetic works of architecture within the city plan. These attributes present a studio discipline taught as the architectural art of the city, as opposed to planning or urban design. This publication documents undergraduate Thesis work completed during the academic year. Steeped in creative research, the projects presented support a pixelated view of architecture not as a single cultural entity, but as a series of micro-narratives and incongruous histories.
For almost forty years at The Cooper Union, Professor Sue Ferguson Gussow has designed and developed a pedagogy that has influenced aspiring architects of varying drawing abilities to explore the possibilities of architecture through drawing. She uses the language of freehand drawing, one of the most fundamental but overlooked speculative tools for architects, to reveal the potential within even the most inexperienced students and show them how to fully observe and perceive the world around them.
Sue Ferguson Gussow is a figurative painter who works in a wide range of drawing and painting media. Now Professor Emerita of the Irwin S. Rome was not a human inhabitation, but also a psychic substance or creature, with a similarly rich and substantial past in which not only whatever has been in existence has never perished but also, parallel to the last phase of development, all earlier incarnations live on.
The project is a study of the plans of the cities Rome, Berlin, and New York in order to propose a 21st-century civic institution and define its site with significance in regard to Freud's definition of the city as a psychic entity. This was the assignment to the fourth-year architecture students at the Cooper Union on September 7, Four days later the destruction of the World Trade Center occurred.
Whether seen from the roof of the Cooper Union building or within the streets of New York, each student and faculty member proceeded to address the civic space of architecture at the scale of the city, past, present, and future, for one semester. Although there is only one project specifically proposed for the Ground Zero site, the subject as a whole can be seen as an address to the question. This study as conducted in the aftermath of this monumental urban event is motivated toward the creation of intimate civic space with inventive contemporary program.
As the city is now open for redefinition, the project can be considered to address the future conscience necessary to solve the problems posed. The institutions proposed integrate an understanding of the relation between form, site, and program within a literary vision of the possibility of the city. I leave you with this image, of prayer in a house with windows.
Here, at The Cooper Union. Chanin School of Architecture of the Cooper Union, researching writing, art, and sound and their relations to architecture. In , the poet and professor David Shapiro invited Michal Govrin, the Israeli writer and theater director, to lecture on certain spatial concepts of the sacred.
Thirty years later, the Cooper experience in architectural education has demonstrated that in order to deal with the issues enumerated by the critics, in order for the work to be truly of this, our modern world, it was crucial not to abandon the discipline of architecture and substitute it for either planning and engineering, or for sociology, psychology, or anthropology, or to engage in nostalgic or populist evasions. It is a tribute to the original program of the school that such popular and often legitimate concerns never weakened the fundamental faith in the possibilities of an authentic architecture for a modern humanity, simultaneously imaginative and ethical.
The installation of models, drawings, and photographs along with faculty and student statements, documented work from to To accompany the exhibition, The Cooper Union published an extremely influential limited edition book—long since out of print—of 54 projects by some 60 students showing their in depth explorations of problems based on the visual discoveries of cubism and neo-plasticism as they related to architectural space and thought.
Reconstructed with additions by Kim Shkapich based on the original design by Roger Canon. It has the capability of inspiring and reinspiring Demonstrating the transformation and evolution of the student works of the school from to , and, as well, recording their stability, this second book documents the pedagogical intensity with respect to the study of architectural form-making.
It is an extraordinary display of talent, invention, and technical virtuosity. The first part of this volume chronologically covers the first four years of the design studio: including the Ledoux exercise, the Cartesian House, the Beam and Balance projects; the Utilitarian Object; Analysis; and the urbanism investigations of the fourth year studios.

The branch libraries provided amenities sadly lacking in the neighborhoods in which they were located. They offered books and periodicals in more than one language, a clean and well-lighted place for reading, programs supporting reading for adults and children, educational lectures, theater, and an educated and available staff of librarians for multi-lingual programming from their inception.
Andrew Carnegie donated five and a quarter million dollars for the construction of sixty-seven branch libraries in the New York City Library System that were built between and These libraries were conceived as a collection, with similar plans, materials, and style, and were designed by the finest architects in the U. Fifty-four of these libraries are still used today, comprising over a quarter of the New York Public Library system.
This publication is a historical, cultural and architectural overview of the New York City Carnegie Libraries, with photographic documentation of the extant libraries and extensive bibliographic information on Carnegie libraries. Forewords by Rudolph W. With an Introduction and overview by Mary B. Trees celebrate life and death. Their branches flare upward in the sky attempting to offer perches to the angels and trees root down into the earth encompassing the remains of the long dead.
Man cuts trees to produce his own casket. The sap of some trees gives forth a sweetness to the lips. To draw them is to taste them. The drawings in this volume are the outgrowth of the first year freehand drawing class in the School of Architecture.
Professor Gussow juxtaposes these studies with citations from literature and poetry, creating a visually engaging book which is a visual testament to the senuousness of the graphite line. Published to celebrate the th anniversary of The Cooper Union.
Designed by Stuart Hicks. An old building is a piece of history. It can teach us about our past: how things were made, and what was considered important, the "look" and the "feel" of the times. Documenting a design studio project conducted by the faculty Diana Agrest, John P. The study shows that buildings constructed to meet the needs of a bygone era of industrial development can be adapted for new, modern roles. Black and white photographs of the site are accompanied by exquisite ink drawings of the solutions.
Funded by the National Endowment of the Arts. Introduction by John Hejduk. Text by Frank Brill. Designed by George and Co. Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in , The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.
From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony. Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.

THESIS This is the fourth in the annual series of thesis publications chronicling undergraduate Thesis work, completed between This publication highlights undergraduate Thesis projects completed in the academic year.
Inspired by the Yves Klein work A Leap Into the Void, the studio was prompted to consider "the inclination toward "the abyss," toward the unknown…the magnet activating intellectual curiosity in the arts and sciences…To reach this place, one must leap into the void: an unsighted, often reckless and always erratic exploration of the uncharted territories where architectural research dwells.
This publication presents the Thesis work of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture class of The Cooper Union established a curriculum that included architectonics and formal organization as foundations of architectural education many years ago. Thesis at The Cooper Union expands these foundational disciplinary principles to include contemporary ecological and technological perspectives, and relational thinking that investigates Architecture's role in the construction of social networks, communicational patterning, and new forms of human settlement and civic structures.
Thesis is regarded as individual work, but the School's pedagogy fosters collaborative group formation as research topics become clear. Inevitable thematic similarities appear — geo-political, humanitarian, psychological, ecological, technological and artistic.
