Celebrated architect Renzo Piano presents work by Genoa, Paris, and New York-based Renzo Piano Building Workshop — a client roster that includes the Chicago Art Institute, the Morgan Library and Museum, the New York Times, the Whitney Museum, and Columbia University. Once completed, the university’s 17-acre and 6.8 million square-foot Manhattanville campus will retain the existing street grid, improve pedestrian access, enhance waterfront views, introduce open space to the public, and provide new homes for the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, the School of the Arts, Columbia Business School, the School of International Public Affairs, an academic conference center, and more. Response by Dean Amale Andraos and Nicolai Ouroussoff.
Sponsored by the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York.
