Why Knock Down the Oldest Building on Fifth Avenue? with Tim Greer
Tim Greer will present an architectural case study of a 14-story building his firm, TP Greer Architects, designed on Fifth Avenue. The building defies the recent trend to insert new very tall structures into a lower scale context, choosing to be responsive to and respectful of an existing urban context while embracing new technologies and using sustainable means and methods of construction. Greer has a master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design. For the last 20 years, his firm has focused on renovating and expanding historical buildings in New York City.
