Model Behavior Exhibition

The term “model behavior” is commonly used to describe good social skills. An exhibition open at The Cooper Union from October 4-November 18, 2022 titled Model Behavior, curated by the Anyone Corporation, turns that concept on its head to investigate how models themselves behave. Conceptual models, study models, section models, and presentation models are givens in the practice and production of architecture, but the role of the architectural model in projecting or eliciting social behavior is seldom considered. At a moment when models in other disciplines—such as climate change and COVID models—are clearly affecting social behavior, how do architectural models reflect those changes or contribute to changing behaviors? This exhibition provides an opportunity for individuals to rethink the potentials of the architectural model, both within the discipline and in its relationships to the myriad models that shape contemporary culture.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
