The Student Work Collection Database

Permissions Outreach
Wherever possible, the Architecture Archive has conducted personal outreach to each author represented in the database to obtain permission to publish her/his work. This included reviewing contact information from the School of Architecture, the office of Alumni Affairs and Development, and Cooper Union’s Alumni Directory as well as targeted internet research. Not all alumni represented in the Student Work Collection were located or contacted through this extensive process. If you find your work published on the database without having given consent for this, please contact Project Manager Caitlin Biggers to formalize the permissions process. The Architecture Archive will promptly honor takedown requests from any authors who do not want to include their work on this site.

Corrections and Missing Information
The Archive is committed to accurately presenting each student project in its online database, and we encourage authors to submit corrections and share missing project information. To do so, please contact Caitlin Biggers.

Database Additions
We will continue to add new Phase I content to the database in the weeks following the November 13, 2019 launch. If you have previously communicated with the Architecture Archive about including your work on the site, please note that projects will be added as we complete their digitization, processing, and cataloging.
