Chromatic Scale

Barnard College's new Diana Center is an exploration of light, glass, and transparency. The linear building is sectionally organized via a series of double-height atria that provide a visual connection through the building, starting with the café at ground level and finishing with the architecture and art gallery on the top floor.

The Diana Center sits prominently on Barnard's campus overlooking Broadway, connecting this academic enclave to the city beyond.
