Women and Midtown Modern Architecture

With Matt Postal

This walking tour highlights the varied contributions made by pioneering women architects, designers, critics, and curators. Memorable examples of mid-20th-century modernism will be considered, paying particular attention to the sometimes overlooked roles played by women, from Florence Knoll and Eleanor Le Marie to Elizabeth Mock and Ada Louise Huxtable, who collaborated with her husband, Garth Huxtable, on the design of many objects commissioned for the original Four Seasons Restaurant. Major buildings by Skidmore Owings and Merrill will be discussed, including several projects where women acted as lead architect, including Patricia Swan and Natalie de Blois.
