A tipster let us know yesterday that the brass cladding is going up on the recently topped-out new New School building at 65 Fifth Avenue. Intern Arabella Watters swung by for some photos of the upper portion of the building, and here they are! The 16-story, 354,000-square-foot building was designed by SOM, and the bands of brass clapboards and ribbon windows are meant to echo the original New School for Social Research building designed in 1930. The brass cladding is also designed to repel rain and pigeons but let in light.
