Thom Mayne's New Cooper Union Academic Building
Rising up on Bowery St. on Cooper Square is a new addition to Cooper Union — an academic building designed by famed architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis. The building exterior is partially clad in a perforated stainless steel panels, which can be moved to maximize energy efficiency.
Faaancy! Cooper Union has a nice page full of renderings of the project if you want to see what it's supposed to look like when finished.
