HENRY COBB AT COOPER TONIGHT

TONIGHT AT 7PM IN COOPER’S GREAT HALL – – PANEL: THE PREDICAMENT OF ARCHITECTURE

A panel with explore Henry Cobb’s discussion of the predicament of architecture through his recently published book Words & Works 1948-2018. The panel includes Cobb, Nader Tehrani, Preston Scott Cohen, Elizabeth Diller and Marion Weiss.

“On the one hand, it is impossible for architecture to ignore the ethical obligation stemming from the fact that buildings are intended to be useful. On the other hand, it is fatal for architecture to become trapped in the condition of being merely useful. From the ethical perspective, architecture is contaminated by its art status, while from the artistic perspective, it is contaminated by its use status. Yet this is precisely what makes our art so important in the culture: Every work of architecture is inescapably enmeshed in the systems of power and standards of ethical conduct from which its art status demands with equal insistence that it be liberated. The reconciliation of these seemingly irreconcilable demands precisely defines, in my view, the ultimate task of the architect.” – Henry Cobb

This lecture is co-sponsored with The Architectural League of New York. Tickets required.

Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street.
