The keystone of CUNY’S “Decade of the Sciences” initiative, KPF’s new science campus positions the school as a world-class research institution and provides state-of-the-art facilities befitting a truly modern university. The Advanced Science and Research Center and the City College Center for Discovery and Innovation offer a positive presence for the Harlem community and serve as a magnet for nationally and internationally recognized researchers. The influx of talent drawn to the new facility will allow CUNY to maintain its status as a premiere public university, and one which has historically sought to give back to city with over three quarters of its students remaining after graduation. The complex is designed to accommodate a wide range of research initiatives in many varied disciplines, through the use of a modular utility “infrastructure” that can support varied research requirements. Below grade, the buildings share services including a vivarium, a receiving area, building support activities, and core facilities such as Imaging Modalities, behavioral studies and cryo-physics.
