Steven Holl Gives NYU Philosophers Something to Smile About

[All photos copyright Andy Ryan]

All eyes may be on Steven Holl's Towering S planned for the 30th Street Spur of the High Line, but the architect has recently?and somewhat quietly?completed another New York City project: the renovation of 3-5 Washington Place, home to NYU's Department of Philosophy. The landmarked exterior of the 1890 building wasn't touched, but Holl & Gang did quite the job on the 30,000-square-feet of interiors, shaping them "around a concept of the phenomenal properties of light and materials." We first noticed the amazing pictures on Dezeen, then we begged Holl's people to let us use them here. Success!
