  • Moving Modern

    New York | Dates: 23 Jul, 2014

    When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM WEDNESDAY, JULY 23

    Where: At The Center   

    When the iconic Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe was put on the auction block in 2003 in New York City to be sold to the highest bidder, it had an unusual caveat- the winning bidder would have the option of moving the house to a location of their choosing. The publicity surrounding the auction for the first time presented Mid-Century modern architecture in a new light as a moveable and collectable commodity. In the years that followed, several more iconic houses were moved- or proposed for moving- both as the only option to save the building and for private collection.

    The "Moving Modern" program will examine four recent case studies with their contemporary architects and advocates: the Aluminaire House (1931) by Kocher & Frey; Maison Tropicale (1951) by Jean Prouve; the Pearlroth House (1959) by Andrew Geller; and the Lieb House (1969) by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown.

    Join us for documentary film excerpts and a panel discussion that will consider what are the nuanced implications if Modern architecture becomes a collectible commodity like art work or is treated as "moveable" heritage? Can a Modern building's significance be maintained if it is taken from its original site? Does a Modern building's design significance stand independent from its original site, as does a work of art or sculpture?

    Speakers:
    Luca Baraldo, Associate, COOKFOX Architects
    Jon Michael Schwarting, AIA,
    Andre Tchelistcheff, AIA, Founder, Andre Tchelistcheff Architects 
    James Venturi, Filmmaker

  • Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark

    Stone Ridge | Dates: 23 Jul, 2014

    On February 1st, 1913, the brand-new Grand Central Terminal opened its doors to an admiring public. On February 1st, 2013, the beautifully restored Terminal - rescued from destruction by a seminal 1978 Supreme Court decision - celebrates its Centennial, accompanied by exhibitions, events, and a new book: Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark.

    The Terminal's creation combined engineering bravado (sinking two train yards below ground), technological wizardry (electrifying the trains to eliminate steam and enable their underground functioning), and real-estate savvy (replacing the original street-level train yard with 16 blocks of newly prime Midtown Manhattan real-estate, whose development paid for it all) with innovative planning (interior ramps and looping tracks) and Paris-inspired Beaux-Arts design.

    This illustrated lecture by Anthony W. Robins, author of the new book, brings the Terminal to life - its remarkable history, stunning architecture, and central role in creating midtown Manhattan.
