We’ve already declared it the craziest building in Harlem, so how exciting to come into a whole cache of renderings of the new Diller Scofidio + Renfor tower for the Columbia University Medical Center. They particularly reveal the unusual “Study Cascade” that is the core of the building’s design.
This gives a whole new meaning to “in the heights.”
Columbia University Medical Center has just announced that Diller Scofidio + Renfro will be designing a new 14-story medical building on Haven Avenue between 171st and 172nd streets that will be home to high-tech class facilities for all four CUMC colleges as well as the biomedical program within Columbia University’s college of art and science.
The university tapped DS+R, along with Gensler, to create a new landmark for the medical center, one that will be visible from both the George Washington Bridge and Riverside Park.
