A curtain wall is attuned to the needs of NYU’s John A. Paulson Center

Brought to you by:

A new building at New York University (NYU) situated at the southern edge of the urban campus responds to the school’s identity and the character and vitality of the neighborhood. The heavily programmed John A. Paulson Center houses student dormitories, faculty apartments, academic spaces, several performance and rehearsal venues, and a below-grade gym equipped for NCAA play. It was a collaborative effort between Davis Brody Bond and KieranTimberlake, who acted as a singular design team throughout its design and construction.

The Paulson Center occupies an entire city block between Houston, Mercer, and Bleecker streets. It is the result of an eight-year-long design and construction process that in 2016 involved the demolition of the Coles Gym, previously located on the site. The 735,000-square-foot building’s massing and facade design were driven by the three main programs—academic, student residential, and faculty residential.
