Cooper Union or Cooper Union?

The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art is a privately-funded college in Downtown Manhattan, New York City. Cooper Union, founded in 1859, its mission reflected Peter Cooper's fundamental belief that education should be as "free as air and water" and should be available to all who qualify, independent of race, religion, gender or social status. For 150 years, the College has admitted students based on merit alone and provided each with a full-tuition scholarship.

That is one funky looking building. I'd like to see it for myself.

Great photo--I really enjoy taking photos of this building because it is so strange.

I'm not sure if I'll ever get used to the new building in the neighborhood.... Will it ever NOT seem out of place?

I love these foreshortened shots. The Cooper Union is interesting. I was able to take a color theory class in their extension program in 2007.

Nice shots, the new building is stunning, but I feel will always out of place, like wearing new Nikes with a zoot suit.
I posted a shot of the old Cooper Union bldg, albeit in a 1902 context:
