Barren Plazas

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.
