Architecture is a beautiful thing to love | and an even better thing to share

Architect Steven Holl inserts space into a NYU stairwell. The project for the Department of Philosophy at the New York University continues the architect's preoccupation with porosity this time as a means to invite yet preserve the building's historic exterior. The solution interacts without altering the façade of the 1890 building. The project brief included faculty and graduate student offices, seminar rooms, a periodicals library & lounge and a ground floor 120-seat cork auditorium.
