ANY (ABEL NILE NEW YORK) (EST. 2020) is a partnership in architecture. As a part of our shift from acting merely as architects to more open-ended actors, we often operate within other mediums producing cultural, design and research work. By working directly in other mediums rather than blending them together with architecture, we aim to multiply performances rather than intensifying a single one. We are able to think through the potentials of architecture by performing acts of non-architecture.

The lecture will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dov Diamond.

This event is free and accessible to the public in person and through Zoom. Registration is required.

  • 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.
