Writer Fred Bernstein is taking a weekly look at immigrant architects and checks in with Nader on his global beginnings.

“My background is a composite of many roots, languages, and affinities. Lacking a common ground, I have used architecture as a language from which to speak.”

Collaborating with Cooper

NADAAA collaborated recently with two students from The Cooper Union to realize a new pavilion for the Shenzhen Biennale in the Nantou Urban Village of Shenzhen. The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at Cooper interviewed the students, Margaux Wheelock-Shew and Jeremy Son, on their experience of collaborating with a design office to complete a built project. Read the interview HERE.

The next big surprise: somebody over there decided it should be permanent, though it had originally been designed to be dismantled. So, the Chinese welded the joints and sank it into concrete. There is some irony to this because of all the designs the team came up with, the one they meant to be impermanent was the one with the scaffolding. “That thing is not going anywhere,” Margaux says. Tehrani added: “Moreover, it is an important recognition that such initiatives can be in service of a larger civic mission that contributes back to the community in which it is lodged.”

In November 2017 a panel discussion titled “…And Justice for All, Reconstituting Just Potentials” was held at the Center for Architecture. Panelists included NADAAA’s Dan Gallagher, AIA who led the Justice in Design study last year in New York. Other panel members included Dr. Harold Appel, former NYC Correctional System physician; Lex Steppling, lead national organizer, Just Leadership USA; Fernando Martinez, Fulton project director, Osborne Association (Bronx); and Dr. Susan Opotow, professor of sociology at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, served as moderator. Oculus has published an edited transcript of the panel n this month’s issue.

“The imperative for change and the negative effects of our current system are extremely broad. They are generational and affect people of color and those with economic challenges in horribly disproportionate ways. We can do better.”
