A Conversation with Martin Puryear

The biennial Wendy Evans Joseph Lecture on Art and Architecture presents artists whose work is inspired by the built environment. 

On June 27, sculptor Martin Puryear will discuss his work with Architectural League president Billie Tsien. An audience question-and-answer session will follow. 

One of the nation's most celebrated contemporary artists, Puryear is known for his devotion to craft and thoughtful exploration of history and culture. 

His many accolades include a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, a Gold Medal in Sculpture form the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a National Medal of Arts. Major retrospectives of his work have been mounted at MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, and other institutions. 

This lecture is co-sponsored with The Architectural League of New York.

Tickets are free for Cooper Union students and faculty with valid ID, and League members. For ticket inquiries, please refer to The Architectural League of New York  website.
Minimum Mobile Habitat
Design and Fabrication Workshop

This workshop explores the spatial interplay of mass and light to build modular, mobile architecture at human-scale through digital fabrication and full-scale prototyping.

Participants develop essential skills in digital design / making through a fabrication oriented investigation into ergonomics (mass) and atmosphere (light). This elemental relation informs essential questions of mobility as prototypes are deployed and tested in the streets of New York City in the final week of the session.
