“My intention with the building was to resolve the extreme condition of smallness of the site, its void, its lateral compression.”
Raimund Abraham

A Cooper Union design that actually got built.  Not surprising since Abraham teaches at Cooper Union.  This is austrian “death metal” architecture – stainless steel lobby, when I visited NYC there was an exhibit of austrian SM art on display …..   Abraham is THE architect who is PRIMARILY concerned with tectonics.   He was on the jury for my Cooper Union 5th year thesis review.   Also he is now building in China.
