This series of workshops directed by guest lecturers Jürg Keller and Christian Scheidegger integrates the theme "Inside-Outside | Freedom-Fiction" to the explorations of housing in New York and Los Angeles the Design III Building Integrated Studio students are working on with faculty members Nima Javidi, Daisy Ames, Mokena Makeka, and Mersiha Veledar.
The third year design studio, "HI-LOW | HI-HI: Los Angeles | New York," investigates housing in two phases across two coastal city extremes: Los Angeles and New York. Viewed through a set of scaled frames and shared living themes, the aim of the studio is to encourage a mode of thinking about housing that is both inclusive and architecturally precise.
Three workshops will explore one theme in housing in three different scales (and two locations in LA & NY). Each scale/location pairing will inform each workshop date as follows:
· 1:100 (LA) on February 23rd, 2-5PM EST
· 1:25 (NY) on March 23rd, 2-5PM EST
· 1:100 (NY) on April 6th, 2-5PM EST
Throughout the course of the workshops students will approach the idea of housing from different angles formed by oppositions between its outside and urbanity in relation to its inside and domesticity. Guided by presentations and dialogue with guests, faculty, and fellow participants, students will explore and observe potential syntheses between the freedom and frictions these oppositions allow.
This series of workshops will be livestreamed for current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff. You may join the livestream on the day of the event by clicking on the link provided on this page.
