Columbia Unveils Diller-Scofidio Designed Medical Center

Columbia University has unveiled plans for its medical center’s new education building in Washington Heights, the New York Times reported. The university tapped architecture firms Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Gensler to design the 14-story tower planned for Haven Avenue between West 171st and West 172nd streets. The result is a tower with a wide base that slopes inward with each higher floor. The southern side of the building’s exteriors will be exposed through a transparent glass facade.

“It’s like a vertical landscape, a vertical living room,” said Elizabeth Diller, one of the firm’s principals. “For us it was a great opportunity to think about an educational building that had a different kind of logic and take advantage of a fantastically small footprint.”

Construction will begin in early 2013 and should be completed in three and a half years, the Times said. The building wil include an auditorium, event areas, student lounges, cafes and outdoor spaces.

The New York Observer noted that the design project marks a rare vertical one for DS+R, which typically focuses on designing cultural venues such as the High Line and Lincoln Center.

So the finished building will look like a render that has part of the outer walls removed to show what is inside? You know, like these see-through car photos.



If so, that is a really cool effect. And I really like those wonky concrete structures as well.

This building will be a complete contrast to that area! It is a great project and will hopefully benefit the community!

I'll try to upload pictures as construction progresses. I literally work right there - in the first of those three towers.

So far the most amazing thing is the crane which is actually taller than the 30 story buildings.

Can someone give me pointers on how to find it on Google Maps more quickly? I'd like to get an idea of what area it is in.

-edit- Found it.

Floors look pretty tall, should be more than half the height of the neighbouring towers, right?

Couldn't find a thread for it so I'm posting here, that's Columbia's Brain Behavior Institute designed by Renzo Piano
