Late Modern/Post Modern Architecture: The New Frontier
Tuesday, June 30 at 7:00 pm

Please note: This event is now SOLD OUT.

Late modern and postmodern architecture (c. 1970 on) present a whole new frontier in landmark preservation.  While the preservation of postwar modern architecture is already well established in NYC, late modern and postmodern buildings, landscapes, and interiors have only recently become eligible for landmarks protection.  This panel will explore the complexity of - and controversies over – potential landmarks from this era, as well as evolving concepts about the presentation and interpretation of history and context in urban architecture. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view through September 13.
