As part of a Generative Art, Architecture, and Engineering Collaboration workshop, leading practitioners in the field of generative art, design, and machine learning will present their work and engage in a discussion led by students. This extends a multi-year effort to explore generative algorithms and machine learning at The Cooper Union through a series of interdisciplinary seminars and studios, where students from the art, architecture, and engineering schools work together on group projects. Speakers include Luke Dubois, director, Integrated Design & Media, New York University, Aaron Hertzmann, principal scientist, Adobe Research, Golan Levin, professor of electronic art, Carnegie Mellon University, and artists Claire Hentschker, Kyle McDonald, and Subalehka Udayasankar.

Registration required. Please note this free in-person event is first-come-first-served, and an RSVP does not guarantee admission. 



Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)

  • 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.
