Mitchell Giurgola at the A’19 Conference in Las Vegas
On Saturday, June 8th, Mitchell Giurgola partners Carol Loewenson and Stephen Dietz participated in panel discussions at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 in Las Vegas:
Sustainable Transformation: Public-Private Partnership Leads the Way
NYU’s 370 Jay Street was presented as a case study for sustainable adaptive reuse. Mr. Dietz and Ms. Loewenson engaged in conversation with Lynne P. Brown, Senior Vice President for University Relations and Public Affairs at New York University, and Regina Meyer, President of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, on the advantages of the public-private delivery model and how it contributed to the revitalization of a mid-century building.
Open to All: Libraries as Critical Social Infrastructure
Ms. Loewenson also discussed the topic of designing for 21st century libraries with Risa Honig, Vice President for the New York Public Library Capital Planning & Construction, and Margaret Sullivan, Principal of Margaret Sullivan Studio. They explored how architects, clients, librarians and communities are working together to meet the challenges facing libraries today.
