19 Washington Square North establishes a portal to the new NYU Abu Dhabi campus. Located in a historic townhouse on Washington Square Park, the building contains a welcome center, a large multi-purpose event space, classrooms, and faculty offices. The spaces were designed for maximum flexibility, with furniture configurations and spatial layouts that are easily transformed. The integration of state-of-the-art telecom technology establishes a direct link between New York and Abu Dhabi.  The design, materials and palate relate to the culture and desert environment in Abu Dhabi.
