Nader Tehrani appointed Dean of Cooper Union’s School of Architecture

After a nearly two-year search, the Cooper Union in New York has selected Nader Tehrani as the new Dean of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, effective immediately. Following Dean Anthony Vidler’s resignation in 2013, Elizabeth O’Donnell took over as acting dean while the search committee scoured the globe for a permanent replacement.

Tehrani looks to be a prime choice, with a very impressive set of exhibitions, lectures and awards that has already been extensively detailed elsewhere. He is also the founding principal of both Office dA (along with Roldolphe El Khoury) and NADAAA, and previously served as an architecture professor and the head of MIT’s Department of Architecture.
