This Gold LEED certified building, with myriad sustainable features throughout, includes recyclable materials, glass that protects against birds flying into the building, noise cancelling walls for music practitioners and low-carbon concrete.
One of the newest buildings in the Near South Side, Columbia College’s Student Center is a literal gem – at night its translucent façade sparkles with light onto Wabash Avenue. Inside, it is a breathtaking experience for Columbia College students, functioning as both the traditional student union, a place to meet and eat and a highly creative space for music, art and design. As a school that prides itself on its arts education, this Gensler-designed student center is the perfect fit for Columbia College.
