    I love the shape of this thing, but I'd have to agree with your assessment of the curtainwall. Maybe it'll grow on me --- I didn't like the glass on Gehry's IAC building when it first started to be applied.

    Default Brace yourselves...

    They put a panel up on the north side of the building. It's the same color as the Verizon reclad.

    Cooper Square Hotel Update #1: Indecent Exposures

    Wednesday, August 29, 2007
    by ROK88



    How many variations on a theme can architect Carlos Zapata play on the
    facade of his new Cooper Square Hotel on The Bowery? We recently
    offered that the color scheme here seems to echo what went up at the new
    Frank Gehry-designed IAC Building across from Chelsea Piers. But our
    assessment was a bit premature. What we're seeing at the Cooper Square
    Hotel now is far more complex than what was hinted at in the milky
    renderings of this many-faceted 23-story tower. Get this insanity:
    apparently each exposure has its own glass pattern.


    The south facade of the Zapata's Cooper Square Hotel.

    There's white fritted glass on one side, channels of clear glass with overlaid
    panels of perforated white screens running up the middle. And did we
    mention the green glass facing north? Not sure how it will all come together,
    but this could be a nice antidote to that over-decorated and
    glorified pizza parlor down the way.


    Perforated panels on the south facade.




    Green glass facing north at the new Cooper Square Hotel.

    Looks like Zapata couldn't decide which facade treatment to use here ...

    What a strange juxtaposition of curtainwalls and window treatments.

    I'm officially taking back my early criticism of the white curtainwall used on at least one of the sides of this thing though. As the tower has been filling out, that Ghery IAC-esque facade has really grown on me -- just like IAC's facade did for me.

    Who knows whether the Verizon green will go well with the IAC white

    The section with the diagonal (and wood paneling) looks like it was put on inside-out

    I walked by on the morning of Sep. 16th and was impressed. This is a beautiful building.

    I hope that whoever buys, what was to be the Horizen Condo site on West 23rd, uses Zapata's design.

    The green and tan panels at the base compliment the building next door.

    Nicely done.

    It is exciting to see something different go up. I am curious about what the end product will look like.
