Sure we've already had our epic interior reveal of Thom Mayne's new Cooper Union building on the Bowery, but that only touched on the big ideas: the atrium, the spider webs, the views, etc. What about the building's secrets?

Check out the gallery for some new looks inside the mothership, and then click through for more meshy mindfuck action.
