West Side Story: the Evolution of Lincoln Center

August 6, 2016

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is part of Modern architecture’s West Side story. On this AIANY Chapter tour, discover the evolution of the pioneering mid-20th century cultural complex. Learn its origins as part of Robert Moses’s Lincoln Square urban renewal project, its realization by some the most iconic Modern architects of the turbulent 1960s and its reimagining by Diller Scofidio + Renfro over the past decade. Architectural historian and DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State board member John Kriskiewicz, will guide the tour. Organized by the AIANY Architecture Tour Committee.

Saturday August 6, 1:00 - 2:30 pm
