Belfer Hall is Yeshiva University’s undergraduate college of liberal arts and sciences for men. It is a 16-story building comprised of classrooms and laboratory facilities. Positioned on a promontory high above the Harlem River, Belfer Hall’s roof is the highest point in Manhattan.
The configuration of tall towers was determined by the requirement to vent the extensive science equipment used in the University’s labs.
As an Associate Partner with Armand Bartos, prior to establishing Morpurgo Architects, Gus was responsible for designing essential aspects of Belfer Hall and coordinating construction documents with the structural and mechanical engineers.
