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

Arquitectura-G is an architecture studio based in Barcelona, dedicated primarily to edification and teaching. Founded in 2006 by the architects Jonathan Arnabat, Jordi Ayala -Bril, Igor Urdampilleta and Aitor Fuentes. 

The School of Architecture Student Lecture Series is made possible through a generous contribution to the School of Architecture Dean’s Circle by Elsie Jaffe and Jeffrey Brown. 

Lecture in 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.
