The conceptual design integrates both tradition and innovation through the high standards of sustainability (including a radiant cooling and heating system in the ceilings, green roof, and a glass interior to lower the consumption of electricity) to create an innovative learning environment for their exceptional students and faculty. Built by the architect Thom Mayne and his California-based firm Morphosis, in collaboration with Gruzen Samton LLP of New York City, the building is an example of the school’s commitment to academic excellence and leadership in the education of architects, engineers and artists.

The Cooper Union for Advancement of Science and Art has recently opened the doors of their new academic building. To be occupied primarily by the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, one of the nation’s most selective institutes of education, they have created a building that maximizes its utility as both a space for study and research, through the use of new mechanical, structural and environmental technologies in their laboratories.
