The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, commonly known as [Cooper Union](http://cooper.edu/welcome), is an art school located in the East Village of Manhattan. Cooper Union collaborated with IdeasCity to realize the fabrication of one solid structure that represents ideals for the public space of the future city. Flexible, adaptable, transformable, where multiple things can happen, the structure is based on the idea of community as the sum of many different parts that together form a larger entity. This project also serves as a blank canvas where culture, art and people transform an empty pocket in the urban fabric into a living public space.
