EXCLUSIVE: Renzo Piano’s Jerome L. Greene Science Center at Columbia

The latest designs for the Jerome L. Greene Science Center at Columbia's new Manhattanville campus are classic Renzo Piano, a mix of hyper-tech detailing and mechanical elegance.
The new campus is designed to be open and inviting to the surrounding Harlem community, a contrast to the gated walls of Columbia's Morningside Heights enclave designed by McKim, Mead & White
The new science center towers over the area's most prominent landmark, the 1-Train viaduct.
The project has not been altered that greatly since a glimpse of it was revealed in this 2008 rendering, which looks down 131st Street from Broadway.
