Innovators with Norman Foster:
From Guastavino to the Moon
Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm
Buildings, bridges, and flying machines: the engineering marvels of the Guastavinos paved the way for innovations of all kinds. Join renowned architect Norman Foster and his engineering partner Roger Ridsdill Smith to hear about the father-son team whose patented designs defined the Oyster Bar, Saint John the Divine, Ellis Island's Registry Room, and many more New York City landmarks. They'll show how the Guastavinos' work continues to inspire today's building technologies, such as 3D printing on the moon. Co-sponsored by the AIA New York Chapter and presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile.
Free for Museum members; $10 general public, students, and seniors.
Please note: This program will take place at the AIA-NY at 536 LaGuardia Place between West 3rd Street and Bleecker Street.
