Arthur A. Houghton Jr. Gallery
Named for Arthur A. Houghton Jr., a former trustee and chairman of The Cooper Union, this 1,800 sq ft gallery supports the School of Architecture's pedagogy through public exhibitions and events. For over 40 years, architects, photographers, painters, builders, and the school's faculty and students have exhibited their work here, drawing viewers from schools of architecture, professional design communities, and the general public. The Architecture Archive curates, designs, and installs original exhibitions in Houghton and works with collegial institutions to present jointly sponsored exhibitions. Recent Houghton Gallery exhibitions presented by the School include Confronting Carbon Form (2023); Nivola in New York: Figure in Field (2020); Drawing Codes: Experimental Protocols of Architectural Representation (2019, co-presented with the California College of Arts / Digital Craft Lab); Archive and Artifact: The Virtual and the Physical (2018); and Hélène Binet – John Hejduk Works (2017).
