Led by: Françoise Bollack, HDC Board President and author of “Old Buildings – New Forms: New Directions in Architectural Transformations”.

A walk on Greenwich and Washington Streets shows the evolution of creative adaptive reuse in the West Village: from early, massive projects like the Federal Archives building and Westbeth, to more recent, formally inventive interventions in the Meatpacking/Gansevoort Market District, and many surprises in between.

 

The tour is part of HDC’s 2014 conference “New Design+Old Places”. Through the conference, we will showcase projects that broaden traditional perceptions of the field of historic preservation and incorporate contemporary design with historic resources.
