RADIO // Living HistoryArchitect Talks: Avi Oster
Originally aired 2/5/10
Architect Avi Oster led a discussion in the Architect Talks lecture series' Focus on 13th Street series, hosted by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons. Oster discusses his studio's mixed-use project at 3 West 13th Street, which juxtaposes masonry walls and large plate glass windows on an otherwise fairly traditionally "Village-esque" block in New York's Greenwich Village. Sandwiched between taller buildings, the design stands out among its residential, institutional and commercial neighbors thanks to its dramatic use of materials and lights and mixed-use purposes. The lecture took place January 21, 2010 at the New School in New York City (1 hour).
