Cook established Cook + Fox Architects in 2003 with partner Robert Fox. The firm is devoted to creating environmentally responsible high-performance buildings. Major projects include the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, designed to be one of the most highly efficient and ecologically friendly buildings in the world; a large preservation project in the South Street Seaport Historic District in downtown Manhattan, involving 11 existing buildings and the design of three new buildings for a two-block waterfront area; 360 Madison Ave., for which the firm received the 2002 Merit Award from New York Construction News; the Chelsea Grande, a residential development that was selected by the Congress for New Urbanism for the 2002 Charter Award; and the Caroline, a suite of condominiums with forms echoing its former department store neighbors along Sixth Avenue.
An exhibition by Cook, “Green Towers,” will be on display at the Architecture Gallery at The Warehouse from Oct. 30 through Jan. 12, 2007.
