Curtain wall installation progresses Columbia University Medical College's new Graduate and Education Building in Washington Heights. Much of the glass façade has been installed on both the normativenorthern half and the more lively southern half that houses the "Study Cascade." Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro with Gensler, the 14-story tower will house classroom, simulation and training facilities for the college. Within the "Study Cascade," students and faculty will be able to gather in a variety of spaces. Floor to ceiling glass will allow for open views of Manhattan and the Hudson River.
Construction is slated for completion some time next year, with the goal of achieving LEED gold certification.
