Student Work Collection Database: Phase I

Wednesday, November 13

The Student Work Collection represents over eight decades of The Cooper Union's experimental, influential approach to architectural education. This material encompasses analog image, text, and audio records as well as born-digital media that document more than 4,500 projects by over 1,500 students from the 1930s through the present. Phase I will include the Collection's approximately 20,000 analog records dating from the 1930s-2000. This work highlights the architectural pedagogy that distinguishes The Cooper Union from other schools of architecture.

This project launch is free and open to the public.
