More of Mayne's Meshy Membrane Rising on the Bowery

New, 6 comments

The hard working crew over at the new Cooper Union building on The Bowery are busy as ever putting up even more of the metallic skin that we sneak previewed earlier this week. We're crazy for it, so we snapped some more shots of the progress and here they are. This is just one of the green features of this plan from Thom Mayne / Morphosis; what's going up now is " ... an outer layer of semi-transparent mesh screen (that) will create coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter by controlling daylight, energy use and natural ventilation." There's a full gallery of pictures at the Cooper Union website showing how this one will look when it's finished, both inside and out.
