LA Architects Making the World Better: Morphosis Cooper Union Building in NY

New, 16 comments

LA Architects Making the World Better is our irregularly scheduled look at projects around the globe designed by LA-based architects. Want your work showcased? Email us.


Some might dispute the idea of another one of Morphosis' mesh-encased monoliths making the world better. But if you're a fan of the Caltrans headquarters downtown, aka the "Death Star," or San Francisco's Federal Building, then you'll love New York's Cooper Union New Academic Building by Morphosis. Both our brothers at Curbed NY and a Daily Dose of Architecture are following the construction process as the building finally gets its metal membrane installed: "basically the screen is a sculptural veil of a dumb (and I'm guessing cheap) glass and metal box." The school is also tracking its own construction via a Flickr set (with interior construction shots). What can we say? Mayne likes his mesh. Above enjoy the photo gallery of all three projects, and try to guess which is which.
