Andrew Atwood, is assistant professor at UC Berkeley. His work centers on techniques of representation as historical and conceptual instruments and how they specifically relate to the production of architecture and architectural pedagogy. His machines, drawings, and other works have been exhibited widely. Atwood holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard GSD and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Richmond. In 2011, Atwood established First Office with Anna Neimark in downtown Los Angeles. Their work and writing show a commitment to expanding the role of architecture in the public realm and to bringing the community into a closer relationship with art and architecture. Built projects include a collaboration on the Pinterest Office Headquarters in San Francisco, a temporary Screening Room at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, a One-Room House in Los Angeles and a Studio for Art in Charlottesville, VA. Collaborative texts have been published widely, including in architecture journals Log, Perspecta, Project, and Praxis. A selection of essays and projects have been compiled in Nine Essays by First Office, published by Graham Foundation’s Treatise: Why Write Alone. In 2018, Atwood published his first book, Not Interesting: On the Limits of Criticism in Architecture.

This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty and staff. Room 315F.
