Never Built New York Launches Monday LIVE from the NYPL!

Monday, November 14 from 7-9 PM, Paul Holdengraber and Metropolis Books present internationally acclaimed architects Daniel Libeskind, Steven Holl and Elizabeth Diller in conversation with moderator and Never Built New York author Sam Lubell, as they imagine what New York City would have been like if the ideas of some of the world's greatest architectural dreamers had made it beyond the drawing boards and into built form. Join us for the launch of this "fascinating scholarly tour de force!"

SAM LUBELL is a Staff Writer at Wired and a Contributing Editor at The Architect’s Newspaper. He has written seven books about architecture: Never Built New York, Midcentury Modern Travel Guide, Never Built Los Angeles, Julius Shulman Los Angeles: The Birth of a Modern Metropolis, Paris 2000+, London 2000+, and Living West. He writes for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine, New York Magazine, Architectural Record, Architect, Architectural Review, Wallpaper*, Contract, and other publications. He co-curated the A+D Architecture and Design Museum exhibitions Never Built Los Angeles and Shelter: Rethinking How We Live in Los Angeles.

ELIZABETH DILLER is a founding partner of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, an interdisciplinary design studio that works at the intersection of architecture, the visual arts, and the performing arts. With her partner Ricardo Scofidio, Diller is the first in the field of architecture to receive the MacArthur Foundation's “genius” award. Founded in 1979, her studio established its identity through independent, theoretical, and self-generated projects, before reaching international prominence with projects such as Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, and the High Line on Manhattan’s west side. Recently completed projects include The Broad Museum in downtown Los Angeles and The Vagelos Education Center at Columbia University in New York City. Diller has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institution with the National Design Award; the National Academy of Design with a Lifetime Achievement Award; and the American Academy of the Arts and Letters with the Brunner Prize. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Diller graduated from the Cooper Union School of Architecture in 1979. She is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University.

STEVEN HOLL joined the Architectural Association in London in 1976 and established Steven Holl Architects in New York City. As founder and principal of Steven Holl Architects, Holl is the designer of all projects ongoing in the office. Considered one of America’s most important architects, he is recognized for his ability to blend space and light with great contextual sensitivity and to utilize the unique qualities of each project to create a concept-driven design. He has received the 2014 Praemium Imperiale International Arts Award for Architecture, the 2012 AIA Gold Medal, the RIBA 2010 Jencks Award, and the first ever Arts Award of the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards (2009). He is a tenured Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture and Planning, and has also taught at the University of Washington, the Pratt Institute, and the University of Pennsylvania.

DANIEL LIBESKIND established his architectural studio in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment. Daniel Libeskind’s practice is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects internationally. The Studio has completed buildings that range from museums and concert halls to convention centers, university buildings, hotels, shopping centers and residential towers. As Principal Design Architect for Studio Libeskind, Libeskind speaks widely on the art of architecture in universities and professional summits. His architecture and ideas have been the subject of many articles and exhibitions, influencing the field of architecture and the development of cities and culture. He lives in New York with his wife and business partner, Nina Libeskind.
