Preserving 20th-Century Modernism

Dolkart, urban architectural historian and author of Guide to New York City Landmarks (Wiley & Sons, 1998), as he moderates a discussion with Belmont Freeman, founder of Belmont Freeman Architects; Nina Rappaport, chair of DOCOMOMO/New York-Tristate and editor of Constructs, the Yale School of Architecture's magazine; Frank Sanchis, Senior Vice President of the Municipal Art Society; and Theo Prudon, President of DOCOMOMO/US, exploring the preservation of 20th-century architecture as represented by New York-area Saarinen buildings such as the TWA terminal at JFK Airport and Bell Labs (Holmdel). Presented in conjunction with Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future. $
