A DATA-RICH CAMPUS MODEL

Thedata rich model of Columbia’s campus wasthe foundation for an in-depth analysis of existing space.

Thedigital model of the entire campus created a deep understanding of space types, size,ownership, and use.

KEY FINDINGS - OUR CAMPUS 1306 1312 1014 72 33 600 624 618 623 619 1104 754 916

KEY FINDINGS - OUR CAMPUS SPACE TYPE AVAILABILITY

Future teaching methods require large, flexible classrooms.

Thesespaces are not widely available on today’s campus due to the physical limitations of Columbia’s building portfolio – specifically column spacing and ceiling heights.

SMALL CLASSROOMS

Small classrooms for delivering specialized content will be important in the future but there is currently an excess on campus.

MEDIUM CLASSROOMS

Flexible classrooms with 60 seatsplay a keyrole in Columbia’s pedagogy.Existingmedium and largeclassroomsarealready in high demand.

LARGE CLASSROOMS

Extra largeclassrooms with adjacent breakout spacesareneededfor newpedagogies but donot exist asneededoncampus.

Small Classroom: 1,400 sf
