One of the most eagerly awaited architectural projects in New York City was opened this week. The new Cooper Union School for the Advancement of Science and Art was dedicated and PSFK was on hand for the ceremony and a full walk thru of the building. School president George Campbell Jr said that the project was ten years in the making and two of those years involved selecting the right architect alone. Eventually the School contracted the Pritzker-Prize winning firm Morphosis of California. Firm founder Thom Mayne talked about his desire to use the opportunity to produce a building that really challenged the existing NYC architecture.
