Changing Use: The Dilemma of Landmark Interiors

Wednesday, March 25, 6pm
Panel Discussion

The challenges of preserving New York’s landmark interiors doesn’t end with their designation. Changing circumstances that mandate their conversion to different functions may bring about alterations that change the appearance and may compromise the integrity of the site. Hugh Hardy, H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture; Kitty Hawks, interior designer; and Justin Davidson, architectural critic, will join New York magazine design editor Wendy Goodman in a provocative discussion, introduced by Judith Gura, about the problems faced in preserving landmark interiors in an era of changing needs and a city committed to the pursuit of the new.

Public Lives: Preserving New York's Landmark Interiors

Wednesday, April 16, 6pm
Panel Discussion

Many of New York’s best interiors survive for a reason: people. In challenging the forces that nearly led to the destruction of such places as Grand Central Terminal and Radio City Music Hall, preservation advocates secured a future for an extraordinary interior design legacy that enriches our lives today. Kent Barwick, civic leader and former NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission Chair; Roberta Brandes Gratz, journalist and urban critic; and Francis Morrone, architectural historian, join preservation historian Anthony C. Wood for a checkup on the interior preservation movement, with an introductory overview by Kate Wood, co-curator of NYSID’s exhibition, “Rescued, Restored, Reimagined: New York’s Landmark Interiors.”

Presented in collaboration with the New York Preservation Archive Project

Participants will learn about how and why great architectural experiments were able to take place — the social forces they responded to, the engineering feats they achieved, the rules their architects broke — in a challenging and informative game, with friends.

Organized in partnership with Open House New York
