Cynthia Davidson is executive director of the nonprofit Anyone Corporation, an architecture think tank in New York City, which publishes the international architecture journal Log, which she founded 16 years ago, and once published ANY magazine, a tabloid she edited from 1993–2000. She is responsible for more than 40 books in print, including two for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, and 24 books in the Anyone project’s Writing Architecture series – which includes titles by Anthony Vidler, Pier Vittorio Aureli, Elizabeth Grosz, and Mario Carpo – published by MIT Press. She co-curated “The Architectural Imagination,” an exhibition of ideas for Detroit shown in the US Pavilion at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale; started the pop-up architecture gallery Anyspace in New York in 2017, and has organized and hosted a number of cross-cultural multidisciplinary conferences on architecture at venues around the globe, from Seoul to Ankara, Buenos Aires to Rotterdam. Occasionally she also writes for periodicals that begin with the letter A, including Architectural Record, Artforum, Arquitectura Viva, AA Files, and Abitare.
Cynthia also teaches writing in the Graduate Architecture and Urban Design program at Pratt Institute. She was recognized by The American Academy of Arts and Letters with its Architecture Award in 2014, and is a former Loeb Fellow in Advanced Environmental Studies at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff.
