How Local Governments Are Transforming Green Building Policies — and How to Prepare
August 18, 2022 | By Emily Low and Abram Goodrich
The U.S. government’s recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes unprecedented investments in green buildings, including rebates and incentives to ensure that buildings are highly efficient and resilient. It would be easy to assume that this forward-looking legislation applies only to new buildings, but some of its most important provisions are actually aimed at providing pathways for existing buildings to assess tax deductions for retrofits.

Columbia Business School’s new home spans approximately 492,000 square feet across two buildings
that reflect the fast-paced, high-tech, and highly social character of business in the 21st century. The two
new facilities, Henry R. Kravis Hall and David Geffen Hall, double the School’s current square footage,
creating multifunctional spaces that foster a sense of community—spaces where students, faculty, alumni,
and practitioners can gather to exchange ideas. The design of both buildings recognizes that creativity,
innovation, and communication—skills often nurtured in informal environments—are as crucial to
business school pedagogy as the traditional, quantitative skills taught in a classroom. The building
organization shuffles alternating floors of faculty offices with student learning spaces in the eleven-story
Kravis Hall and floors for administrative offices and learning spaces in the eight-story Geffen Hall. The
shuffled program is expressed in each building’s façade with systems tailored to the populations and
uses. The school’s internal spaces are organized around intersecting networks of circulation and
collaborative learning environments that extend up vertically through each building, linking spaces of
teaching, socializing, and studying, to create a continuous space of learning and interaction that remains
vibrant 24 hours a day.
