Taking the history of the subject of the body in Western Architecture theories as a point of departure, M. ARCH II students Sally Chen, Yingxiao Chen, Giedre Darskute, Nien Ying Lin, Jamie Lindsey, Austin McInnis, Roni Schanin, Doosung Shin and Qincheng Wu thread their work from the Fall 2019 Advanced Design Studio I taught by Prof. Diana Agrest, Architecture as a Transcursive Field: Film, into a cinematic ensemble featuring multiple storylines.  Titled New York Revelations, the film develops through chapters representing each students’ contribution in revealing the subject of the body exposed to the city to form a collective narrative. Their explorations utilize the conventions of genre to unfold a filmic reading of the city. 

The film will be introduced by Prof. Diana Agrest. 

This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff. Room 315F.

  • 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.
