A new project from Situ Studio – founded by Instructor Wes Rozen with fellow 2005 School of Architecture graduates Basar Girit, Aleksey Lukyanov-Cherny and Bradley Samuels – has come to fruition as a temporary installation in Times Square. Thyme Fast Food is a sustainably minded fast-food restaurant that will inhabit the 75-square foot Western red cedar-slatted kiosk through November, bringing healthy, vegetarian focused dishes to the Times Square melee.

 

  • 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.
