An unprecedented collection of design projects and practices, 30 Years of Emerging Voices: Idea, Form, Resonance (Princeton Architectural Press, 2015) documents close to 250 of the most innovative North American design firms of the past three decades. Since 1982 The Architectural League of New York's Emerging Voices program has recognized architects, land­scape architects, and urban designers whose distinctive voices promise to influence architectural discourse, design, and practice for years to come. Insightful essays and commentaries by leading critics, architects, and historians consider and contextualize the continuing impact of the Emerging Voices' inventive work on architectural culture and the built environment.

The awardees spanning the thirty year history include 23 School of Architecture Alumni and Dean Nader Tehrani.

  • 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.
