Chase Manhattan Bank, Operations Center (Chase Financial Services Center, Metrotech, Brooklyn, New York [subseries]:
The major operations center for the bank, Chase Metrotech consists of a two building complex whose large lower floors act as a podium for the slender 23-story tower. The simple geometric forms and the use of such detailing as corbelled brick corners respond sympathetically to the character of the neighboring 19th-century landmarked houses. At the same time, the backlit tower distinguishes the complex on the Brooklyn skyline.

Islamic Cultural Center of New York, East 96th-97th Streets and Third Avenue New York, New York [subseries]:
SOM Project #6081


The Islamic Cultural Center of New York comprises a 1,000-person mosque, an assembly room, and minaret (the latter designed by the architectural firm of Swanke Hayden Connell). It was the first religious center built for New York's Muslim community and, with its minaret and copper-clad, precast dome, creates a striking presence in its Upper East Side community. The building is rotated on its site to face Mecca, breaking out of the city street grid. SOM's original master plan also called for an administrative building containing classrooms, a library, offices, a conference hall, an apartment for the Imam, and a 20-car parking garage(unbuilt).

  36  
Drawings - Design for dome base circumference, by Manuel Keene, comprising verses from the Qur'an (II: 255 - 257) in a modern computer adaptation of Kufic calligraphy, and sign band for the entrance of Gate-house (see also Shop drawing 04425 36-1)

A mixed-used structure including offices, a hotel, residential space, and parking. Two versions of this project were prepared for the client. The second scheme represents a complete rethinking of the design based on the constraint that the client was unable to obtain the land needed to build the first scheme. Consequently, the entire program was consolidated into one building instead of two.
