Soaring Glass-Clad Towers Highlight NYU Paulson Center Expansion
The newly expanded John A. Paulson Center at New York University is a multi-use building that combines multiple disciplines, spaces and people. The 735,000-square-foot facility features a transparent, high-performance façade with angled glass panels and bird-friendly measures.
The building consists of three glass-clad towers rising from a base spanning a full city block. Permasteelisa engineered and manufactured the building’s façade, which includes 279,871 square feet of unitized curtainwall panels. The fabricator was BGT with Interpane-coated glass.
The angled glass panels create a textured façade that shades solar gain, while the bird-friendly glass was designed with custom-fritted glass to prevent bird strikes. Energy models estimate that the facility will exceed the NYC Energy Conservation Code by more than 20%.
