  • Is Preservation Elitist?

    New York | Dates: 20 Jul, 2015

    While many of New York’s designated historic districts are known for their grand architecture (such as Brooklyn Heights and the Upper East Side), an increasing number of others – including Tin Pan Alley, Flushing, Weeksville, and Chinatown– are famed for their distinctive cultural character.  But how exactly do you preserve a “culturally distinctive” place? In some cases is formal preservation actually a hindrance to saving what a community loves best about its neighborhood? What are the other protective strategies to ensure such places retain tradition, culture and even its population? Join a panel of community activists, preservationists and architects as they discuss the challenges of preserving these unique neighborhoods, whose greatest asset lies in the histories they contain, rather than the quality of their buildings. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks.

  • Late Modern/Post Modern Architecture: The New Frontier

    New York | Dates: 30 Jun, 2015

    Late modern and postmodern architecture (c. 1970 on) present a whole new frontier in landmark preservation.  While the preservation of postwar modern architecture is already well established in NYC, late modern and postmodern buildings, landscapes, and interiors have only recently become eligible for landmarks protection.  This panel will explore the complexity of -- and controversies over – potential landmarks from this era, as well as evolving concepts about the presentation and interpretation of history and context in urban architecture. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks.

  • Tour NW Portland’s Historic Goldsmith Addition Homes

    Portland | Dates: 21 Jun, 2015

    NW Children’s Theater & School (NWCT) and NW Neighborhood Cultural Center (NNCC) present, the 4th Annual Walking Tour of Historic Homes — Restored City Homes of the Historic Goldsmith Addition. 

    The tour begins at NNCC (originally known as the First Church of Christ, Scientist, 1909), located at: 1819 NW Everett St., Portland, Oregon.

    Tickets for this walking tour are $25 and are available at NWCT’s website: or at NNCC/NWCT the day of the event. The tour includes six historic homes in NW Portland. All proceeds will be utilized for improvements to accessibility for the disabled, in the Historic NW Neighborhood Cultural Center, home of NW Children’s Theater & School and other organizations which draw thousands of children and families to the building and neighborhood annually.

    Inspiration for this year’s tour is the now famously saved and soon to be restored Goldsmith Home. 2015 has been the year of the demolition of “good old houses”, a recurrent wave of hasty destruction that comes with a renewed economy.

    With half dozen demolitions, proposed, or near misses this year just North of Lovejoy alone, this tour shows the public that North of Lovejoy is rich with historic resources and possesses criteria to merit special designation just like the Alphabet District South of Lovejoy.

    The Goldsmith Home, the family home built by Portland’s first Jewish mayor, Bernard Goldsmith was designed by one of Portland’s most gifted architects, Edgar Lazarus (U.S. Customs  House, Vista House at Crown Point and Pioneer Courthouse). Losing the Goldsmith Home would have been an unspeakable tragedy, but thanks to 10 neighbors that pooled funds in chunks of $100-$800,000, this home was saved.

    This tour includes these homes:

    1. The Kyer Home (1909, Architect: Emil Schacht)
    2. The Wilson Home (1904, Architect: David Williams)
    3. The Barlow Home (1896, Architect unknown)
    4. The Bernard Goldsmith Home (1892)
    5. The Ladd Home (1898, Architect: Whidden & Lewis)
    6. The George T. Willett Home (1911, Architect: Josef Jacobberger)

    This year’s tour is dedicated in honor and in memory of Mike Ryerson (1940-2015), former committee member, founder of Mike’s History Tours, local NW historian and preservation advocate.

    NWCT and NNCC thanks fellow event presenters, The Dan Volkmer Team and Windermere Stellar and event sponsors: Antoinette Antiques & Estate Jewelry, Arciform, Caffe Mingo, Fidelity National Title, Mark Benham Mortgage Express, NNCC Board, Pearl Med Spa, Slabtown Tours, Uptown Hardware and World Cup Roasters.

  • How to Research the History of Your House

    Portland | Dates: 19 Sep, 2015

    Ever wonder who lived in your house before you...or what your house looked like originally...and why is there a bathroom on the back porch? Researching the history of your house can answer those questions and many others you might have. It can even shed light on the development of your neighborhood.

    Please join us as historians Tibby O’Brien and Morgen Young take you through the steps to uncover the history of your vintage house (as well as any other building). Using the latest online sources, local archives, and libraries, they will show you that the process is not so mysterious when you know what steps to follow and where to look.

    Space is limited. Pre-registration is recommended.

  • E1027: Design for Living

    New York | Dates: 26 Jun, 2015

    AIA CES: 1.5 LU
    When: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM FRIDAY, JUNE 26
    Where: At The Center

    How do we put modernist design and architecture into words? That is what architect-designer Eileen Gray and architect-critic Jean Badovici attempted to do in the 1920s with their conversations, published as
    From Eclecticism to Doubt, in L’Architecture Vivante, 1929. Together, as partners in work and love, they built a house by the sea-code name E1027–that illustrated the questions explored in their dialogues. Paramount was Gray's position that design is “not a matter of simply constructing beautiful ensembles of lines, but above all dwellings for people.”

    Join us for a performance on Friday, June 26, as these groundbreaking discussions between Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici are brought to life by two actors, Anne Priol and Mica Smadja, through a multi-media staged reading adapted and directed by artist Elizabeth Lennard. Together, Gray and Badovici, Priol and Smadja, chart out early modern design priciples as they discuss the relation of house to landscape and climate, how to harmonize the interior with the exterior; and the cold calculations of architectural theory versus human emotions. Gray and Badovici express opposite points of view until they find a new way to design and build together and reconcile their differences.

    Organized by: Center for Architecture

    Price: $10 for AIA members and students with a valid ID; $15 for non-members

  • Architect Talk: A Line Around an Idea—Drawing in a Computer Age

    Pittsburgh | Dates: 26 Jun, 2015
    In this illustrated talk, James Wines, founder and president of SITE, a New York City-based architecture and environmental arts organization, discusses the history of calligraphic content in art and architecture as a means of clarifying the inseparable connections between mind and hand for the development of conceptual ideas.

    From inverting expectations of what a “big-box” store should look like via BEST Products Company, to envisioning the Museum of Islamic Arts in Doha, Qatar, as a landscape of rolling sand, Wines has over four decades of successful practice, and stresses that in this age of computer rendering, drawing by hand remains vitally important.
  • Silver to Steel: The Modern Designs of Peter Muller-Munk

    Pittsburgh | Dates: 21 Nov, 2015 – 14 Mar, 2016

    Silver to Steel situates Peter Muller-Munk (1904–1967), a German émigré to the U.S., among the most influential designers of his generation. With more than 120 works of hand-wrought silver and popular mid-century products, supported by drawings, multimedia interviews, and period advertising, this exhibition presents the untold story of a man who rose from anonymity as a young silversmith at Tiffany & Co. to become a crucial postwar designer, promoting the practice of industrial design across the globe through one of the top design consultancies in America: Peter Muller-Munk Associates (PMMA).

    Beginning with Muller-Munk’s remarkable Art Deco silver, the exhibition also features his best-known designs: the streamlined Normandie pitcher and Waring waterfall blender. But the revelation comes in his previously undocumented work: cameras, radios, cocktail shakers, power tools, and refrigerators; and total environments for gas stations, international expositions, and mass-transit vehicles. PMMA’s contributions to public projects like the famous Unisphere for the 1964 World’s Fair, have been overlooked for decades. The firm counted Alcoa, Bayer, Bell & Howell, Bissell, Mellon Bank, Pittsburgh-Corning, Silex, SOHIO, Texaco, U.S. Steel, Waring, and Westinghouse among its scores of national clients. For these and other firms Muller-Munk produced thousands of designs.

    Silver to Steel, will reestablish Muller-Munk’s position as one of the preeminent industrial designers of the mid-20th century and provide visitors the opportunity to explore the impact of good design on everyday life.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue produced by Carnegie Museum of Art and DelMonico Books/Prestel.

    Silver to Steel is co-organized by Rachel Delphia, The Alan G. and Jane A. Lehman Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, and Jewel Stern, independent scholar and curator.

    Pittsburgh | Dates: 27 Jun, 2015
    Get an architect’s perspective on the development of conceptual ideas as James Wines leads participants through a series of drawing exercises designed to challenge and enrich any artistic practice.

    James Wines is the founder and president of SITE, a New York City-based architecture and environmental arts organization. From inverting expectations of what a “big-box” store should look like via BEST Products Company, to envisioning the Museum of Islamic Arts in Doha, Qatar, as a landscape of rolling sand, Wines has over four decades of successful practice, and stresses that in this age of computer rendering, drawing by hand remains vitally important.
  • Broadway Modern Tour

    Winnipeg | Dates: 29 Jul, 2015
    This 90 minute tour focuses on the post-1945 development of the area as a premier business district and the collection of modernist architecture designed by some of Winnipeg’s most notable firms.

    Broadway between Main Street and Osborne Street has long been an address of prestige, book-ended by two dominant, significant works of architecture – Union Station to the east and the Manitoba Legislative Building to the west. The early history of the avenue was as a desirable residential neighborhood, with little commercial activity. A building boom in the late 1950s to early 1970s, however, was responsible for the development of the Broadway as we know it.

    All surfaces will be wheelchair and stroller accessible. The tour is free and no registration is required.
  • Terra Cotta Architecture Tour

    Winnipeg | Dates: 08 Jul, 2015
    Did you know that many of Winnipeg's "stone" buildings are made of clay?

    Winnipeg’s terra cotta collection is large and essentially complete. It is an unparalleled sampling in North America of the variety, versatility and beauty of this material. Join us for a tour through Winnipeg's downtown to learn more about the history of terra cotta, of Winnipeg's history and to view this wonderful collection of terra cotta architecture.

    The tour, led by Gail Perry, will take about ninety minutes. All surfaces will be wheelchair and stroller accessible.
