one saturday evening in early september, we finally had a chance to walk by this project while on our way to vandaag(yes! we tried the restaurant- and it was really good! click here to see my previous post about the restaurant design).

for a more complete project story, check out morphosis’s blog(?) morphopedia. there they described(very, very detailed) the initials, the concept, and  what they had achieved as the building is the first LEED-certified academic laboratory in NYC with a platinum rating. they also included a time-lapse construction film which is interesting to watch how it was built.

i am happy to see the design doesn’t look like just another LEED-certified building.

my favorite detail in this project is actually this environmental sign designed by independent design consultancy pentagram.(they are also the design consultant behind the logo of highline )

click here to see more interior and rooftop signage design – they’re awesome.

by the way, the adjacent cooper square hotel by carlos zapata studio has a interesting exterior design as well. they have a nice lounge area close by the lobby- but no photos have been taken, as i don’t want to look like a nerd taking pictures right in front of the building while many beautiful people walk in and out the entrance…
