The Changing Face of SoHo – A Walking Tour with Matthew Postal
HDC’s 2014 conference “New Design + Old Places”
Saturday, December 7th
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Take a walk through the iconic streetscapes of NoHo and SoHo as our guide illuminates some of the contemporary responses to this rich commercial neighborhood of cast-iron and masonry structures. Attendees will look at new buildings, recent additions and preservation projects by Aldo Rossi, Beyer Blinder Belle, and Jean Nouvel among others. Come delve in the past, present and ever-changing future of this bustling and well-loved neighborhood. And stay for some holiday shopping afterwards!
These tours are 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.
These tours are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York City Councilmembers Margaret Chin, Inez Dickens, Daniel Garodnick, Vincent Gentile, Sara Gonzalez, Stephen Levin and Rosie Mendez.
