Cooper Union

COOPER UNION'S NEW ACADEMIC CENTER

The old Cooper Union building— solid, eclectic, quirky—is really one of the great and storied places in New York City (we’ve all heard about candidate Lincoln’s big speech there). Now it has a strikingly modern counterpart across the street, a new academic building designed by LA-based provocateur Thom Mayne, of the firm Morphosis. It’s a startling (in a good way) addition to a neighborhood in flux.
