review the Cooper Union exhibition


This Saturday, I also visited Cooper Union. On display at the “Production Building” was student work from art, architecture, and engineering. The most of the following images are of the architecture work and the others are of the art work. I also snapped a photo of the building by Morphosis. Gotta love those letters!

There was no caption, so your guess is as good as mine as to the depiction of the work. Please comment about the nature of the work. How does this work remind you of our work? What do you think the student was trying to convey? What techniques to you recognize?

    Much of the architecture work you show seems to be precedent studies. There are models of the Baroque church of St. Ivo in Rome by Borromini, drawings of Sydney Opera House, etc. I wonder what level this is?

    I know its not first year (first eight photos are). The studies of St. Ivo were on the “Advanced Studio” floor.

    I actually visited the show last friday, the 12th??
    Personally I thought the Art presentations were a little more interesting than what CU had to provide for architecture haha.
    They had some pretty neat stuff but I feel like the program at Cooper is more about craft and fundamentals of Architecture rather than innovation and do what ever you want. A lot of their woodshop models are models of existing structures. However their second-year studio project was SICK. haha
    anyways maybe i’ll post up the pictures i took sometime soon (:
