41 Cooper Square
41 Cooper Square, the nine story 175,000-square-foot academic center was designed by architect Thom Mayne. In 2009, the Cooper Union opened the building where you'll find the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, 41 Cooper Gallery, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Louis and Jeannette Brooks Computer Center, The Herb Lubalin Study Center, The Saturday Outreach Program, and state-of-the-art laboratories, classrooms and studios along with conference rooms and lounges. The building is also known for its many "green" features which reduce energy use while enhancing the environment. This is the first academic building in NYC to achieve the LEED Platinum status.
