Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture will present an exhibition of student works ranging from architectural drawings and detailed scale models to computer-aided renderings of famous sites and emerging developments, including a reimagined development plan of Columbia University. The Cooper Union End of Year Show has a rich tradition of showcasing projects by emerging architects that has helped launch the careers of such well-known alumni as Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio, Shigeru Ban, Laurie Hawkinson, Diane Lewis, Stan Allen, Daniel Libeskind, Toshiko Mori and Rolf Ohlhausen.

The School of Art faculty have selected major pieces by students representing "the best of" each discipline ranging from sculpture, graphic design and painting to video installations. Young artists' work will include both individual and collaborative efforts, illustrating the school's continuing role as an incubator of significant artists such as alumni Milton Glaser, Alex Katz, Amy Cutler, Wangechi Mutu, Lee Krasner and Edward Sorel.

Albert Nerken School of Engineering will participate with a wide variety of projects representing the different engineering disciplines ranging from a Formula 1 race car, a system using sound waves to measure the health of blood flow and gardens heated by repurposed steam heat to a car that is fueled by chemical reactions (no fuel required) and a working pipe organ. All of these innovative works were researched and developed in The Cooper Union labs.
