Trailblazers

December 8, 2018

This Municipal Art Society walking tour highlights the varied contributions made by pioneering women architects, designers, critics, and curators. Memorable examples of midcentury architecture and design will be considered, paying particular attention to the sometimes overlooked roles played by women, from Florence Knoll (1917) and Eleanor Le Marie (1928-1970) to Elizabeth Mock (1911-1998) and Ada Louise Huxtable (1921-2013), who collaborated with her husband, Garth Huxtable (1911–1989), on the design of many objects commissioned for the original Four Seasons Restaurant. Major buildings by SOM will be discussed, including several projects where women acted as lead architect, including Patricia Swan (1924–2012) and Natalie de Blois (1921–2013). Matt Postal will guide the tour.

Saturday December 8, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
