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.

“An internationally renowned artist, architect and engineer, Cecil Balmond OBE, is widely considered to be one of the most significant creators of his generation. Balmond transcends the conventional boundaries of discipline, working in the crossover between art and science. In this dynamic area, he has re-invented the very concept of space, transforming the meaning of geometry, form and structure.”

Tonight from 6:30pm – 9:00pm Cecil Balmond with lecture in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square. The event is free and open to the public and is approved for 1.5 LU | HSW Continuing Education Credits. More info and registration HERE.

NADER MODERATING THE THE WILLIAM COOPER MACK THESIS FELLOWSHIP LECTURE TONIGHT

William Cooper Mack, Of Anisotropic Matrices – Thesis, 2005-06

The William Cooper Mack Thesis Fellowship Lecture: Digital Materiality in Architecture is being presented at The Cooper Union tonight with lecturers Meejin Yoon and Fabio Gramzio. Nader and Michael Young will moderate. The lecture will be held in The Great Hall in the Foundation Building at 7 East 7th Street. While you’re there, make sure to stop by the current exhibition,  Archive and Artifact: The Virtual and the Physical, currently on display in the Arthur A. Houghton Gallery!

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP HERE.

“The work of Fabio Gramazio and Meejin Yoon both draw on digital and computational intelligence through their research and built body of work,” notes Dean Nader Tehrani. “Gramazio’s work, under the banner of Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH has effectively defined the many ways in which formal, spatial, and material practices have been transformed by digital protocols, using their laboratory as a test bed for novel and unprecedented fabrication explorations, working with both traditional materials and invented composites. Meejin Yoon’s work, in contrast, was launched at MIT under the banner of MY studio, and subsequently in collaboration with Höweler Yoon studios, with a research focused on interactive technologies, imaging all the ways in which physical spaces can be augmented through sensory technologies that make for intelligent and responsive environments. Now after more than a decade of research, the two bodies of work converge as digital technologies come into conversation with other disciplines, among them physics, biology, and other sciences. In a dynamic and active field, as architects who share an intense commitment to practice and research, both also share an imagination about how our pedagogies will be impacted by technologies that stand to alter our understanding of both representational and generative thinking.”
