Düsseldorf Museum, Formal Analysis by Marina Akopyan, Minghao (William) Du, Kyungmin Park, Tianyang Sun

The Cooper Union

Bachelor of Architecture Program

Project Name: Düsseldorf Museum, Formal Analysis

In the third year Formal Analysis studio, students explore canonical examples of twentieth-century architecture by six key architects from the Modern and Post-Modern era. Working in groups, they investigate four buildings by each architect to discover a range of concepts and ideas, learning to see and read as an architect. By examining the key polemical concepts, positions, and arguments of each architect, students begin to build a vocabulary of spatial concepts. Their rigorous formal analysis of these buildings, via detailed drawings and physical models, yields a critical understanding of architectural form. This project analyses theDüsseldorf Museum of Art (1980) designed by the architect James Stirling.
