Science Has a New Home at the Northwest Corner Building

After much planning, design, and construction, the Northwest Corner Building welcomed the University's science faculty members on November 29. The 188,000 square foot building provides much needed academic research space for the Arts and Sciences department as well as the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science and fosters interdisciplinary research, study, and interaction among the sciences.

Nestled in the Morningside campus' northwest corner at 120th Street and Broadway, the 14-story science building provides seven research lab floors, 21 new labs, an integrated science library, a café, and direct connections between Pupin and Chandler Halls, among its many features.

The Northwest Corner was a collaborative effort among all Facilities departments, with construction managed by Capital Project Management. Renowned architect José Rafael Moneo designed the building's unique aluminum and glass façade in partnership with Davis Brody Bond. Turner Construction is the construction manager.
