SKYSCRAPER URBANISM: The Singer Building in Context
Wednesday, April 23, 2014
The Singer Building in Context
Professor, New York University
Wednesday, April 23, 6:30 p.m.
New York’s Singer Building, the world’s tallest building when completed in 1908, defied the rules of real estate and skyscraper construction. Inspired by the DIA’s recent acquisition of the Singer Building Grille, Hilary Ballon puts this unusual building in historical context and explains how it modeled a new, influential approach to skyscraper urbanism.
