Furman Hall, NYU School of Law


The master plan and new building for NYU’s School of Law reorganize departments for greater synergy. Furman Hall provides academic and student space, café, academic administration, law clinics and faculty apartments. The classroom and social spaces complement those in the existing Vanderbilt Hall, and connect physically to the Library. To cultivate an ‘around the clock’ atmosphere, there are continually available student spaces. The Law School worked to respect the concerns of the Greenwich Village community. The new building incorporates the reconstruction of two historic facades: that of the Judson House and a row house once occupied by Edgar Allan Poe.

Constructed, 2004
