The New York Landmarks Conservancy, Institute of Classical Architecture & Art New York Chapter, and EverGreene Architectural Arts present “Understanding Traditional Techniques in Historic & Contemporary Spaces”
This four-part series is designed to educate architects and designers on how traditional ornament – plaster, murals, stained glass, and decorative finishes – are made, installed and have application in historic preservation and contemporary design projects.
presented by: Max Newroth, EverGreene
Plaster can be used in a wide range of settings and applications. This class will review how plaster can be used in an architectural setting – from flat installation to the creation of historic and contemporary ornament. Case studies may include Ohio Theatre, Playhouse Square (Cleveland), LDS Temple (Philadelphia), King Street Station (Seattle), Private Residence (NYC), and the Russian Lounge at the Kennedy Center (Washington, DC). Participants will also learn about casting ornament from non-traditional materials. Some participants will have the opportunity to cast ornament and/or run plaster molding.
Max Newroth brings more than 15 years experience in the design fabrication and installation of complex ornamental GRFG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum) elements in commercial and hospitality venues. His projects include serving the Latter Day Saints (Philadelphia), Ohio Theatre (Cleveland), Russian Lounge at the Kennedy Center (Washington, DC) and St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral (Brooklyn, NY).
