Columbia's campus has a number of barren plazas built
in the 1960's concrete style of architecture. The picture below is of
East Campus, though the plaza in front of
Pupin Hall is also poor. Columbia
is short of open green spaces, although some of those that it does have are very
fine. Perhaps a sculpture garden, uniting the pieces of modern art that
are marooned around campus, would be appropriate on this site.
Update 9/15/00: Columbia's top planning consultant Wendy Feuer reports that plans for at least a temporary sculpture garden at this location are under way.
