An Evening with Barry Lewis: The Village

Speaker: 
Barry Lewis
Thu, 05/12/2016 - 18:30
Thu, May 12th, 2016 | 6:30 pm

EVENT DETAILS

New York’s first Bohemian neighborhood was Greenwich Village in the 1910s, when everyone from Edna St. Vincent Millay to John Sloan made “the Village” their hangout. It became so hip that by the 1920s the Bohemian era was over, due to rising rents and new luxury apartment buildings—until the next disaffected generation took up the Village’s mantra of non-conformism.

Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th centuries.

The French were pioneers of iron and glass construction in the 19th century. By first building shopping gallerias in the early 19th century, then Henri Labrouste’s magnificent iron-framed Saint Genevieve and National Libraries in the midcentury, followed by the celebrated Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais at the century’s end, the French showed us how to “love” metallic construction and embrace its new aesthetic.
