Cooper Union Tops Out!

An Oram client,The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art ( today celebrated the topping out of its new East Village academic building. Designed by West Coast architect Thom Mann this "green" and very innovative addition to New York's civic spaces has been made possible by generous private philanthropy, borrowing and modest government encouragement.

One of the most striking attributes of the building is - despite its cutting edge look - how easily it complements the original (and still functioning) Foundation building completed in the late 19th century. For a tour of the new building visit the Cooper Union web site.
