One To World Walk: Mid-Century Modern Along 53rd Street
October 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
It's almost impossible to walk through midtown Manhattan without straining your neck looking up at the tall buildings. The beautiful skyscrapers and unique designs are part of what gives New York its unique character.
Join us on our third architecture tour of the semester to learn more about modern midtown's stunning design from our guide William Singer. William Singer, AIA, is the Chief Plan Examiner for The City of New York Department of Buildings and an expert in the design and construction of large-scale public facilities. His major projects have included justice centers, transportation hubs, and cultural centers. Before joining the Department of Buildings he was a partner at Gruzen Samton, a NYC & Virginia-based architecture, planning, interior design and systems engineering firm. A Fulbright fellow (Slovenia, 1993-94), he holds a Master of Architecture degree from the School of Design at North Carolina State University, as well as a Master of Arts in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2004, Singer received a City of New York Arts Commission Excellence in Design for the renovation design of El Museo Del Barrio.
In case of rain, the tour will be held on week later on October 23rd.
