Showcases an essay written by Mersiha Veledar on: "Architecture of Healing" and student projects on her teaching at the Cooper Union School of Architecture fourth year Urbanism Studios.
Open City: Existential Urbanity is an anthology of architecture created and advocated by the students of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union in studios conducted by the Architect Diane Lewis, Professor, with a team of notable colleagues from 2001-2014 (Mersiha Veledar among others). The drawings and models are accompanied by project descriptions that regard any contemporary intervention into the city as an integral work of architecture, art, and sustainable infrastructure. This volume extends the legacy of Cooper Union's seminal Education of an Architect: A Point of View (1972) and Education of an Architect (1988).
