PIN-UP Launches 'Fire Island Modernist' at The Standard Highline

On May 6th, a discussion about Fire Island Modernism and the legacy of architect Horace Gifford took place at the Standard High Line. The talk featured Fire Island Modernist author Chris Rawlins, architect Charles Renfro, New Museum Deputy Director Karen Wong, architect Matthias Hollwich and designer Rafael de Cardenas, and was moderated by PIN-UP editor Felix Burrichter. The audience witnessed a pre-AIDS world resurrected before them, in both the pictures of Gifford’s houses and the sun-kissed Polaroids taken by Tom Bianchi during the same era. The discussion ranged from gay sexual liberation to ecological sensibilities, revealing the significance of these houses to be far beyond their primary function as dwellings.
