New Design + Old Places: Post Conference Tours-BAM-Pictures


Brooklyn Academy of Music as New Design

Sunday, March 9, 2014, 11am

Join HDC and 2013 HDC Landmarks Lion recipient Hugh Hardy, as we visit several Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) interiors and exteriors, which were renovated, restored and reused under the guidance of Hardy, an architect of many theatrical spaces. Attendees will see the award-winning and unusual interior renovation of the BAM Harvey, discuss the exterior restoration at the Gilman Opera House and have a chance to view the new flexible theater spaces at BAM Fisher, itself an adaptation of a landmarked building. The tour will be followed by a discussion with Hardy and Sharon Lehner, archivist of BAM, about the history and evolution of the BAM cultural campus.
