The Public School (for Architecture) New York intends to reactivate dismantled professional networks of the New York architectural community into a productive force that can collectively begin to make sense of current cultural, economic and technological conditions through open-ended discourse and alternative approaches to education. The Public School (for Architecture) does not have a permanent location. A Teacher’s Lounge at the Van Alen Institute (30 W. 22nd Street. 6th Floor) will function as the administrative headquarters for The Public School (for Architecture) for the duration of the New York Prize fellowship residency (September 2009 - December 2009).

Courses will be held in a series of three itinerant classroom installations, located in transitional public spaces- lobbies, thresholds, large corridors - within established architectural institutions in the city. The second session (November 1-22) will be located at the New York Center For Architecture at LaGuardia Place.

The Public School (for Architecture) New York is a Van Alen Institute New York Prize Fellowship project and is supported in part by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Annenberg Foundation.
