*퍼펙트 큐브 [ SOM ] perfect cube

in new york, SOM has completed a new facility designed to enhance NYC’s 911 emergency response system. contained within a perfect cube, the public safety answering center II (PSAC II) brings together multiple city agencies, including the police department, the fire department, and emergency medical services. located on a prominent nine-acre site in the bronx, the 450,000 square foot building has been designed to be as secure as possible, while still contributing to the surrounding urban fabric.


serving as a back-up facility to the city’s primary call center, PSAC II increases new york city’s ability to maintain communication in the event of a natural disaster or large-scale emergency. designed by SOM as a perfect cube, the structure’s almost windowless elevations are the result of security concerns. to reduce the building’s monolithic appearance, the architects developed a serrated façade that includes recycled aluminum.


the cubic structure is bordered by a raised bank of wild grass, which helps to protect the facility and shield views of the surface parking from the nearby hutchinson river and pelham parkways. the landscape, which requires no irrigation, also offers the building’s occupants a connection with the natural world. meanwhile, the project’s interiors are designed to be soothing environments for the site’s emergency response teams.
