Meet at the fountain in the plaza of Lincoln Center.
Discover the evolution of this pioneering midcentury cultural complex. On this tour we explore Lincoln Center’s origins as an urban renewal project by the infamous Robert Moses, announced in 1956. We begin with the Center’s design and construction by some of our most iconic Modern architects in the turbulent 1960s, and conclude with its reimagining by Diller Scofidio and Renfro in this past decade for 21st century New York.
Tours will run rain or shine. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour start time. Registration is limited to 15; walk-ups are not guaranteed a spot on the tour. Some tours utilize VOX amplification systems; attendees are welcome to bring their personal earbuds.
