Aiming High in Medical Education

Vagelos Building
Brian Hatton

Lauded by Architect Magazine as “one of the most intelligent, original, and unexpected buildings of the decade,” the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center at Columbia University Medical Center was dedicated on June 10. The new medical and graduate education building, a 100,000-square-foot tower designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in partnership with Gensler, incorporates technologically advanced classrooms, collaboration spaces, and a modern simulation center.
