Event description

Description

How did Never Built New York‘s unrealized projects meet their fate—and what did their makers learn from the experience?

On February 4th, 11 architects, planners, and historians will gather at the Queens Museum to discuss the stories behind the show’s unrealized urban visions. Literary historian Cheryl Fish will discuss June Jordan’s contribution to Buckminster Fuller’s Harlem Skyrise. Architect Frederick Noyes will weigh in on his father Eliot’s Westinghouse Pavilion for the 1964 World’s Fair. Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed will illustrate the ten-year saga of a never-built upgrade to JFK Airport, and Christen Johansen, Associate at Ennead Architects, will discuss his father John Johansen’s Leapfrog City. Other participants include Dan Wood, Principal at WORKac, Winka Dubbeldam, Principal at Archi-Tectonics, Ian Volner, author of Michael Graves: Design For Life, and Andrea Lamberti, Partner, Rafael Viñoly Architects.

This wide-ranging event will be emcee’d by exhibition co-curator Sam Lubell and architecture critic Alexandra Lange.
