STREET VIEWS is a new film series that explores our connection to the built environment through documentaries, narratives and experimental works.  The series creates a forum for conversation with invited guest artists, filmmakers and architects who join for post-screening discussions.  The inaugural edition, “Existing Conditions,” features works by international filmmakers whose close examination of the physical world becomes the basis for meditations on social space, transformation and the contemporary urban landscape.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
