Summary: 
Italian architect Renzo Piano said Monday was a perfect day to dedicate Columbia University's new science center that is part of the school's $6.3 billion West Harlem expansion. "This is exactly the day I wanted for today: sunny, breezy, fresh, crisp," he said, standing in front of the 450,000-square-foot Jerome L. Greene Science Center that replaces a defunct industrial site. "Fresh air, that's what we need," he added. The nine-floor edifice featuring exposed steel beams is part of Columbia's upcoming $6.3 billion campus that will unfold in upper Manhattan over the next decades.
