Renzo Piano Building Workshop has completed the development of a neuroscience research facility of Columbia University in Manhattan.

Named Jerome L Greene Science Center, the facility is located on the university’s Manhattanville campus near the Morningside Heights in Harlem, reported Dezeen.

"The facility is located on the university’s Manhattanville campus near the Morningside Heights in Harlem."

The new building is the first of a larger campus masterplan, which will be jointly executed by Piano and the architecture firm Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM). Construction and design of the other building, Lenfest Center for the Arts, has also begun.

Featuring double-skin glass walls to prevent the noise of subway trains and let in light, the centre is also equipped with a management system, which automatically lowers the blinds on a sunny day and switches on indirect artificial lighting at night.

The nine-storey centre features two outdoor terraces, meeting rooms, laboratory areas, and breakout spaces such as kitchens.

The building is expected to be in operation by next year.
