CUMC Medical and Graduate Education Building

Columbia's new medical building in Washington Heights is starting to reveal some of its radical form with construction reaching the fifth of fourteen floors, which is a big advancement since the last update in early April. The southern half of the building contains DS+R's signature sloping floors and the multi-story breakout spaces of the "study cascade" concept touted by the renderings released to the public. For the northern half of the building, the architecture appears to take on a more conventional form for the classrooms and offices.
