The Evolution of Architecture and Living Styles in Manhattan

Green Building and Historic Preservation
Monday, December 10, 2007
Each seminar is NYS- approved for 7.5 hours of real estate broker continuing education credits.
What: This preservation-focused educational series will enhance participants’ appreciation and understanding of our historic neighborhoods as we explore the development of Manhattan and the evolution of architectural styles in NYC. We will also examine the laws governing the landmarks process to help guide property owners seeking to alter or restore their apartments, townhouses or commercial facades. We will see that preservation does not seek to freeze our communities in time; rather it enhances the beauty and value of our ever-evolving neighborhoods. The series finale will examine practical green building and energy efficiency measures that can be taken when restoring and renovating older homes.
Featured Speakers: Francoise Bollack, AIA, principal, Francoise Bollack Architects, winner of The Green Building Competition for New York City; Mosette Broderick, MA, NYU design professor and architectural historian, Francis Morrone, MA, acclaimed author, lecturer, and teacher; and Karen Zukowski, MA, author of Creating the Artful Home: The Aesthetic Movement; Gregory Dietrich, Cultural Resource Consulting Group; Jean Phifer Parker, FAIA, principal, Thomas Parker Architects; Andy Padian, Steven Winter Associates; Craig Graber, Viridian Energy & Environmental, LLC, among others.
