Cooper Union Administrative Building


Spacesmith designed a new department in Cooper Union's Administrative Building to bring together Admissions, the Registrar's Office and Financial Aid. The goal was to create an efficient "one stop" for students, programmed to move intuitively with the registration process. The floor was divided into three zones by installing two partial height dividing walls. Staff offices run along the periphery while student areas are kept open and free flowing in the center. Cooper Union’s colors (red, yellow, blue, and green) are used throughout to differentiate space and help with way finding.
