The idea behind the two buildings of the Columbia Business School mixes high-tech to high-social and wants to foster a sense of community and informal interaction between users, as even internal spaces are organized around two networks that ease informal interactions between users and the faculty.
For the same reason, at street level–where those networks meet the landscape, we’ll find a two-story urban-scale living room and a terraced interior space that becomes a 300-seat large conference space.
The Columbia Business School is now hosted by a couple of astonishing buildings, separated by a beautiful and publicly accessible green space. On our cooperation with W&W Glass, we supplied the curtain walls that wrap the two structures of the Columbia Business School’s new home in #Manhattanville.
The facade system, alternatively fritted and transparent, was custom designed.
