Paris-New York, ca. 1913: Architects and the Beaux-Arts Connection

Monday, October 7, 2013 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Columbia University Morningside Campus East Gallery, Buell Hall

This panel discussion explores new research on American architects who studied at the cole des Beaux-Arts  and their French classmates who taught or practiced in the U.S. Panelists will focus on the Beaux-Arts contingent active in New York City around 1913. This group includes Columbia professor Alfred Dwight Forster Hamlin and design luminaries such as Whitney Warren, Ernest Flagg, Harvey Wiley Corbett and John Russell Pope. Firms such as Carrre and Hastings, Delano and Aldrich, Herts and Tallant, George & Edward Blum, which played a key role in shaping New Yorks architecture, also find their origins in friendships nurtured at the cole.

Isabelle Gournay is Architecte DPLG, Ph.D.  and Associate Professor of Architecture, University of Maryland. Marie-Laure Crosnier Leconte is Conservateur en chef du Patrimoine, Researcher at the Institut National dHistoire de lArt in Paris
