The core of this collection consists primarily of design studio work documented for the exhibition and publication Education of an Architect: A Point of View in 1971, and the second volume of Education of an Architect published in 1988. Since then, a cross section student work has been recorded on an annual basis. Largely unpublished, this collection is an invaluable resource for student / faculty / historical research, exhibitions, publications and accreditation purposes. As a whole, it represents a comprehensive trajectory of the pedagogy of Architecture at The Cooper Union at critical times in the history of the school. Included within this wealth of information is a small assortment of photographs, taken primarily for promotional purposes, dating back to the 1930s.
