Event Details

The new Columbia University School of Nursing is a state-of-the-art educational facility at the Columbia University Medical Center campus in upper Manhattan. The design focuses on creating a bright, welcoming pavilion that anchors the eastern edge of the medical center's campus and offers students meaningful social connections internally while opening outwards to the neighboring community. The building resulted from an invited design competition and provides sixty-five percent more space than the school's current location. Densely programmed to alternate educational areas with spaces for community outreach, the building accommodates various styles of teaching and learning with specialized functions—innovative simulation technology, research facilities, and student and faculty spaces—that reinforce the school's mission and pedagogy, resulting in an environment that facilitates collaboration, interaction and clinical excellence.
