41 Cooper Square
|location||New York, New York|
41 Cooper Square, the new academic building for The Cooper Union, aspires to manifest the character, culture and vibrancy of both the 150 year-old institution and of the city in which it was founded. The institution remains committed to Peter Cooper's radically optimistic intention to provide an education 'as free as water and air' and has subsequently grown to become a renowned intellectual and cultural centre for the city of New York. 41 Cooper Square aspires to reflect the institution's stated goal to create an iconic building, one that reflects its values and aspirations as a center for advanced and innovative education in Art, Architecture and Engineering (text from architect's website).
