Master of Architecture II Advanced Design Studio 2017-2018 Graduate Thesis Exhibition: Torwards a New [Hypo]thesis

This exhibition presents the work of the 2017-2018 Master of Architecture II Graduate Design Studio, focusing on Thesis projects but presenting a selection of work from the entire academic year of the graduate program.  

Graduate thesis provides a unique opportunity to test new architectural paradigms that are unique to an individual's own interests in architecture, as rooted within a larger question in architecture today. Within the formulation of a key argument, each student was asked to invent [verbal and visual] evidence with hopes of radically augmenting novel architectural realities through the lens of a 'hypothesis' as an investigative design proposition. The unique culmination of this year's projects aims to test the conceptual underpinnings of key subject areas through a sequence of deeply varied themes that challenge the future of architectural discourse and the world we inhabit in the form of a critical question.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Sunday, 12 - 7 PM. 

This exhibition is free and open to the public.
Open Lines: An Architectural Drawing Show

Reception Friday, September 14 at 8PM to 10PM at 67 Avenue C, New York, NY

A collection of analog drawings from the students of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, exhibited within a community space in the East Village. A chance to engage, to share, to bring the inside out.

This collaboration amongst students aims to highlight the work produced at Cooper in the form of drawing. The inspiration for the exhibition began as a conversation between a handful of students that grew into a coordinated effort. The group successfully collected and curated work to display in a community space in the East Village, as a way to demonstrate the responsibility the school's students feel in sharing their work with individuals outside of Cooper and the discipline of architecture. The works produced are evidence of the ways in which students work through the hand, mind, and eye. This project seeks to create a space for new discourse between students, alumni, faculty, and the greater community. 

August 14 - September 21, 2018
67 Avenue C
New York, NY 10009

Gallery Hours: 12-6pm, Monday - Sunday

This event is free and open to the public.
