The newest addition to Columbia University is also the most fun to watch rise. The new home for Columbia University Medical Center's graduate program is a crazy zig-zagging tower with a "study cascade" designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The cascading floors and interesting angles are already very visible in the tower, which Field Condition recently photographed. The 14-story tower is now topped out, and pieces of the interior, like the prefabricated stairs that will fill those cascading ramps, are arriving at the site. The facade's curtain wall should be arriving soon, and the building will be complete sometime next year.
