About this project

New York University’s new academic building is designed with an all-glass facade that lets neighbors peer into students’ lives. The building includes a gym, a swimming pool, three theaters and class rooms. It is topped by two towers with faculty and student housing. Hallways and staircases will be on the outside of the building behind a glass façade. Lerch Bates provided vertical transportation consulting for the new project.
