Work on the curvy, cascading stairs-fitted building in Washington Heights, otherwise known as the Columbia University Medical Center has been progressing steadily over the last few years, and it appears that the building's glass facade has now been installed, photos by Tectonic reveal. The Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed building stands 14 stories tall and features 100,000 square feet of classroom facilities.
Construction on the project began in August 2013, and by the looks of it is likely that the building will ready for occupancy sometime this year.
Other facilities in the building include an auditorium, lounges, and a cafe. Environmental sustainability was a part of the design strategy adopted by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and they're looking for the building to receive a LEED Gold certification when complete.
