i love the architecture its well captured
I live right there, I’m sorry to be a Debi Downer, but I think the metal panels look like crap.The panels are very dull metal except the small reflective squares.
It doesn’t look so bad in this pic, though.
Yeah, looks way better here than irl
Thanks all. What I wonder is why they want to make everyone look through that mesh. Isn’t one of the nice things about being inside is being able to look outside? Also what is being in that Faraday cage going to do to radio and cell phone reception.
Looks like a total monstrosity, I never cease to be amazed at what the Landmarks Preservation allows to be destroyed while saving some dumpy non-descript building. They allowed Wash Sq park’s area character to be completely destroyed for NYU’s monstrosities on the South side, now this horrid looking warped glass box and that high rise warped looking glass box on the other side next to a historic building like Cooper.
I can’t get too worked up over the old academic building, it was no architectural wonder. But the line of spaceship looking things that have landed on the Bowery are something else. I wish they were in someone else’s neighborhood.
This is an eye sore for a building. Why couldn’t Cooper Union, a school of architecture no less, have hired Frank Gehry, if they wanted to make an indelible statement?
Hi, I’m an admin for a group called The Ugliest Buildings in NYC: Your Choices, and we’d love to have this added to the group!
This building epitomizes the word UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you look up "Ugly" in the dictionary you will find a photo of this building there!
