Jerome L. Greene Science Center featured in Architectural Record article “Thick-Skinned”

Columbia University’s Jerome L. Green Science Center is the first of 15 new buildings on the 17-acre Manhattanville Campus to begin construction. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the 450,000-square-foot neuroscience lab is using a double skin envelope to be transparent to the neighborhood surrounding the building.

Atelier Ten worked closely with Renzo Piano Building Workshop to define and achieve ambitious environmental aspirations for the Jerome L. Green Science Center. Atelier Ten guided the design of the high-performance double skin façade that meets high environmental and acoustic requirements. We also worked closely with the engineers to increase energy savings through optimized laboratory ventilation rates and innovative conditioning strategies.

Atelier Ten’s team from the New York office includes Director Nico Kienzl and Associate Junko Nakagawa.
