Should the New York City skyline change or stay the same?
It’s the question being debated at a panel being held by Municipal Art Society and The New York Landmarks Conservancy this Wednesday, May 11 at 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. : Debating New York’s Skyline: Evolving or Embalmed?
Recent proposed plans to build up the skyline (15 Penn Plaza and Tower Verre) have gotten people talking about what a New York City institution should look like.
A panel of experts will debate the future of the cityscape with moderator Paul Goldberger, architecture critic for The New Yorker.
• Kenneth T. Jackson, the Jacques Barzun Professor in History and the Social Sciences, Columbia University;
• Phyllis Lambert, founding director and chair of the Board of Trustees, Canadian Centre for Architecture;
• Dinu Bumbaru, policy director of Héritage Montréal, and former secretary general of ICOMOS
We’ll be on hand to cover the event as it happens with live commentary, photos, and interviews. Join us here on May 11 at 6:30 to see the action as it happens…
NYC skyline should stay as is. It’s an iconic backdrop.
