One of the first things I wanted to see was the new Cooper Union building. When you see photos of it, it seems like a giant building. From each angle, it has a special look, but the weird thing is it's not as huge as you think. It's actually quite quick to walk around this building. The architect is Thom Mayne who's won tons of awards, did the Cal Trans building in LA, and now this. I wish I understood the language of architecture it's speaking since it's sci-fi, complicated, and artistic.
