The architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro will release an unorthodox design for a tower of study and social spaces for Columbia University Medical Center’s new medical and graduate education building in Washington Heights.
The site of this new education center was once occupied by a six-story townhouse that the university owned. That building was demolished to make way the new, state-of-the-art, medical and graduate education center.
