FREE COOPER UNION! Students are protesting and architects across New York City are up in arms after Jamshed Bharucha, current president of Cooper Union, has suggested charging tuition for the first time in the institution's history since 1902. Listen to Curtis B. Wayne on this week's episode of Burning Down the House as he delves into the history of Cooper Union and tells the story of its founder, Peter Cooper. Learn why the notion of charting tuition at Cooper Union is especially egregious and why budgetary transparency should be in order. This episode was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
