Their work is extensively published, exhibited world-wide –The Met NY 2016, Venice Architecture Biennale 2016 and 2010, GA International Exhibitions 2016-2010 in Tokyo, MOMA NY 2015, MAK Vienna 2015, Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism & Architecture 2013 in Shenzhen, etc.- and awarded with international prizes – 2016 NCSEA Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards, Iakov Chernikhov Prize 2012, Rice Design Alliance Prize 2009 to emerging architects, Architectural Record Design Vanguard Prize 2005, among others.
ENSAMBLE STUDIO INSIDE OUT, proposes an immersion into the processes of conception an materialization of the firm’s works; where design is developed through action, through experimentation with matter, structure, form and space simultaneously; where construction is understood as a the final performance of a carefully composed orchestration that needs to be rehearsed beforehand; where the creative mind of the poet meets the practical mind of the builder to make ideas come true.
The exhibition begins Monday, March 6 in the 3rd Floor Hallway Gallery and is on view through Sunday, March 26, 2017.
This exhibition is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff.
