To accompany the exhibition, the Cooper Union published an extremely influential limited-edition book — long since out of print — of fifty-four projects by some sixty students showing their in-depth explorations of problems based on the visual discoveries of cubism and neo-plasticism as they related to architectural space and thought. This new volume is a smaller-format reprint that includes all material from the original book — exceptional color and black-and-white drawings and model photographs — and the original introduction by Ulrich Franzen, along with three new texts, an introduction by architectural historian and educator Alberto Pérez-Gómez; an essay by Kim Shkapich, director of the architectural archives at Cooper Union; and an afterword by Hejduk. The reprint charts the foundations of the pedagogical inventions and methodology that a spirited and independent faculty, under the aegis of John Hejduk, brought into what has been called ‘the best school of architecture in the world.
