The Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center is a new, state-of-the-art medical and graduate education building at Columbia University Medical Center’s campus. The building, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler as executive architect, is a 100,000-square- foot, 14-story glass tower that incorporates technologically advanced classrooms, collaboration spaces, and a modern simulation center to reflect how medicine is taught, learned, and practiced in the 21st century. The design seeks to reshape the look and feel of the Medical Center campus, and also, create spaces that facilitate the development of skills essential for modern medical practice.
