First Friday
Cooper, Robertson & Partners

Join Cooper, Robertson & Partners at its office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at recent and upcoming projects. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

Founded in 1979 by Alexander Cooper and Jaquelin T. Robertson, Cooper Robertson is a 70-person firm providing both architecture and urban design services. Projects such as the iconic design for Battery Park City, the 831-unit Benice Village Community outside of Prague, and the Boston Seaport District illustrate the firm’s master planning expertise. The firm works across a wide range of scales, from pavilions to new towns, represented by projects as diverse as the New York Botanical Garden Café, the CUNY Graduate Center Apartments, and the Val d’Europe community outside of Paris.

Work in progress includes the Las Vegas Boulevard and Park Master Plan, the new Whitney Museum of American Art in collaboration with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, and streetscape plans for two mixed-use areas in San Francisco. The award-winning firm’s most recent recognition is an AIA New York State 2013 Award of Merit for both the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater at Marcus Garvey Park and the Central Delaware master plan.
