01 about

The Jerome L. Green Science Center is a part of the first phase after 11 years of development for Columbia University’s Manhattanville Campus master planning, which encompasses a new urban academic environment of over 17 acres and more than 6.8 million sq ft of educational space. As Architect of Record, Davis Brody Bond worked in collaboration with Renzo Piano Design Workshop on this momentous nine-story, 458,000 sq ft building, which will serve as the intellectual home for Columbia’s expanding research initiative in Mind, Brain and Behavior, to fight diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other neurological afflictions. Encompassed by such a large and unique envelope, the Center focused on utilizing cross cultures of science for an interdisciplinary and social playground for ideas and creation to thrive. Consisting of four vertical neighborhoods, along two intersecting axes: the opportunity to use organized circulation, connecting stairs, double height spaces and variable meeting rooms along with adjacent research and support spaces allows for a cross culture of innovation and collaboration. The U.S. Green Building Council selected the Manhattanville Campus expansion as a LEED Neighborhood Design pilot program. The program aims to “integrate the principles of smart growth, urbanism and green building for neighborhood design.” The unique façade was a key factor in this LEED Gold Certification, incorporating six wall types, including high-performance structural facades, double-skin walls, metal and glass canopies, and vestibules.
