This event is open only to current Cooper Union students, faculty and staff.

Christoff:Finio Architecture (C:FA) is a New York-based architecture and design studio committed to making buildings and environments that bring meaning to place. We seek to make physical and cultural connections in our work as a way to help shape the public and personal space of memory. We take great joy in exploring a contemporary language of architecture rooted in material expression and intellectual rigor. This approach is realized through collaboration with a broad group of forward thinking clients
and consultants.

Lecture in Room 315F. Lunch will follow in the School of Architecture lobby.

You may watch a recording of the lecture on The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture Channel

  • 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.
