LECTURES AND EVENTS

Tuesday, July 16 , 2019
 
It gives me great pleasure to announce that, following an open search that received over two hundred applications, Nora Akawi and Lydia Kallipoliti will join the School of Architecture community as full time, tenure track faculty beginning September first. 

On behalf of the entire School of Architecture, I thank the Faculty Search Committee for their diligence, dedication and many hours of discussion and debate during the search process. We are especially grateful to Diana Agrest and Anthony Vidler for their work as co-chairs of the committee.
 
We look forward to welcoming Professors Akawi and Kallipoliti to the School in the fall and to the new areas of thought that they will bring to the school. Learn More... 
 
  NADER TEHRANI, DEAN | THE IRWIN S. CHANIN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE OF THE COOPER UNION
Imagination of Space: The Cooper Union Project on Governors Island, Nolan Park 6B


Imagination of Space, presented by The Cooper Union for the Advancement  of Science and Art, organized and curated by Ceren Bingol,  is dedicated to the exploration and exhibition of projects in architecture, art,  poetry, sound and performance. A series of residencies and exhibitions  will feature professional and student artists, architects, poets and writers  creating and collaborating on immersive work that celebrates imagination in  space, ecology, form, light, sound and material. The project runs from June 1 through October 31, 2019. 

Exhibitions: 

Phenomenology of Space - (June 1 through October 31)
In an Advanced Concepts in Phenomenology of Space seminar taught by  Ceren Bingol, 10 architecture students, Juan Cardona, Claudia D'Auria,  Yoonsang Jo, Jisoo Kim, Jihoon Park, Karim Sabry, Jeremy Son, Maren  Speyer, Tracy Tan and Brandy Vazquez, explore the intersection of poetics  and architecture through a series of full scale installations and moveable  objects inside the house. The projects reimagine and activate the physical  constructed space and perceived emotional or metaphorical space, while  enabling a collaborative discourse between professional and student creatives,  and the public.

Descension - (June 22 through July 14)
Is an installation by Rebecca Ripple employing a collection of aerial views of clouds downloaded from the  Internet and transferred onto sand bags forming a circle or barricade. Sand  bags are tools for protection and isolation. They are used in war and natural  disasters by the military and civilians. It is an inversion of the art historical  depictions of the Assumption of Mary into heaven ("...having completed the  course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory." -  Pope Pius XII, 1950.) It is a perspective from a flying carpet... hovering and  giving an overview. The Internet is also a way of traveling to new lands and  experiencing without the bodily senses.
