THE VAG OPENING!
Written by Bwog Staff
Barnard College celebrates the opening of The Diana Center Vag with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new seven-story building, with ascending double-height glass atria and a façade of clear and etched colored-glass panels, is already a significant architectural presence on Broadway, in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City.
Designed by WEISS/MANFREDI Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism, the 98,000-square-foot, mixed-use building demonstrates Barnard’s ongoing commitment to enhancing its physical space and fostering the interaction of artistic, academic and social life.
The ribbon cutting and speaking program will be followed by refreshments in the Diana Event Oval.
