The auditorium is within Cooper Union’s new building—41 Cooper
Square—a technologically advanced
academic facility on the east side of Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets. Designed by 2005 Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis, the nine-story, full-block building
replaced more than 40 percent of the academic space at the college with state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, studios and public spaces.
