The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York has unveiled an exhibition showcasing 50 years of undergraduate architectural thesis projects by students of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture. Drawing together the works of Elizabeth Diller, Laurie Hawkinson, Daniel Libeskind, and others, the exhibition titled “Archive and Artifact: The Virtual and the Physical” presents hand-drawn, digital, and three-dimensional works. The exhibition will include a preview of the Architecture Archive’s emerging database of its Student Work Collection, comprising 534 thesis projects produced by students between 1966 and 2003. The collated work will form part of a comprehensive documentation of the school’s pedagogy, which will be published as a public online database in October 2019.
