Thursday, May 5 at 6:30 pm

The Museum of the City of New York

Since the 19th century New York’s hotels have provided glamorous, romantic, relaxing, and stimulating respite from everyday life. What role did hotels play in the life of the city in the past, and how do contemporary designers imagine the place of their hotels in today’s New York City? Trace the history of the hotel experience and hear how contemporary designers are creating the next generation of urban retreats. Featuring Todd Schliemann of Ennead Architects on the Standard Hotel; Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz of BNO Design on the Mondrian Soho; and Scott Salvator on redesigning interiors at the Carlyle. Introductory remarks by Donald Albrecht, Curator of Architecture and Design. Co-sponsored by the New York School of Interior Design. This program is presented as part of the ongoing Urban Forum series Spotlight on Design.
