The Project Description:

About OPEN CITY

OPEN CITY: EXISTENTIAL URBANITY is a compendium of student work and faculty essays from the Architecture Studio on the art of the city, conducted by Cooper Union Professor and alumna Diane Lewis and a team of notable architects at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture from 2001 to 2014 described and proposed in OPEN CITY. The Symposium Day Two, on Saturday, November 21, at the MoMa is free. The symposium will include many of the architecture alumni of the past 15 years as part of a New York and international collection of architects artists and curators sharing experience and accomplishments on the subject of the civic space as the ART/WORK for this time. The closing party will provide a unique opportunity for our community of thinkers to meet, make connections, and initiate a new period of advancing the vision founded on the works described and proposed in OPEN CITY.
The platform of Professor Lewis’s design studios, as well as the team of artists, architects and historians it is comprised of, is based in the thinking and large scale objectives embodied in the vision of Peter Cooper particularly shared with William Cullen Bryant at the outset of our institution.
Please join us in supporting the Kickstarter Campaign. Share it with your friends, and join us at the symposium.
