The New New School building at 65 Fifth Avenue is starting to get its zig zag on! Pictured is a crain hoisting one of the first zig zags into place on the south side of the building. It the renderings are a true indication (I have no reason to believe otherwise) the zig zags will house transparent staircases in the otherwise woody SOM creation. The massive building, built as-of-right, is up to the 12th of it's 16 stories, and the eventual LEED-Gold building will contain 365,000 square feet of dormitories, a library, performance center, as well as various other school facilities.
