Although Cornell Tech's Bloomberg Center doesn't officially open until next month, employees have started moving in to the Morphosis-designed building on New York's Roosevelt Island. Recognized in this magazine's 2017 Progressive Architecture Awards, the 150,000-square-foot, four-story Bloomberg Center includes spaces for teaching, research, and meetings. "A monumental staircase oriented toward Queens, to the east, rises from the first floor—which features an auditorium and two large lecture halls—up through the center’s four additional levels, which are populated by open-plan classrooms along the building’s western edge and smaller private meeting rooms and faculty offices to the east," ARCHITECT contributor Clay Risen wrote in February. The building is part of the larger campus for Cornell Tech, the new graduate school established by Cornell University and Technion—Israel Institute of Technology which has been temporarily housed in Google’s New York building since 2012.
