The Center for Architecture will host an Archtober Building of the Day preview across the five boroughs from May 14-18 celebrating New York City old and new. Today, tour the Queens Theatre in the Park by Caples Jefferson.
The 2011 Caples Jefferson Architects’ project for the Queens Theatre-in-the-Park reception room brings hope as the first bright step in the revitalisation of the area aaround the World’s Fair complex. Built in 1964, the Fair awaits a clear renewal plan. The buildings, originally designed by Philip Johnson and Richard Foster, define an iconic dominance, a context that no other architecture can easily relate to both because of their shapes and history: a distant futuristic optimism solidified in circular-based structures. Nevertheless, from a superficial figurative analysis, the new 600-person reception room gives an impression of having always been a part of the complex.
Architect: Caples Jefferson Architects
