Richard Morris Hunt (1827 -1895) was known as the “Dean of American Architects.” In addition to raising the discipline of architecture to the status of a profession in the United States, Hunt also revolutionized apartment living in New York, created the nation’s first “studio apartment” and gave the city some of its most beloved architectural gems. Along the way, Hunt helped transform New York’s built environment, by championing the City Beautiful Movement, and founding civic organizations like The Municipal Art Society, and The American Institute of Architects. In this virtual tour, guide Lucie Levine will show Hunt’s work as an architect, a planner and a steward of the city.
