The last time Field Condition headed up to Columbia University's under-construction Jerome L. Greene Science Center, designed by Italian starchitect Renzo Piano, was back in May and the glassy research center was making steady progress. Now, seven months later, construction is still chugging along, as most of the glass wall curtain has been installed and only the ground floor and rooftop mechanical spaces on the ten-story structure remain uncovered. The Science Center is the first building to rise at Columbia's Mahattanville campus expansion. Meanwhile, next door, the Lenfest Center for the Arts (also designed by Piano) has topped out.
