Guastavino at the Museum of the City of New York: Museum Visit

Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile is a major exhibition exploring the innovations the Guastavino Fireproof Construction Company (1889-1962) brought to the science and art of building. It was originally organized by MIT’s John Ochsendorf, who is a MacArthur Fellow; it is substantially expanded here to include some 20 key Guastavino spaces in the five boroughs.

Join FRIENDS for a tour of this important exhibition and learn about the father and son team and their major impact on the buildings of New York City.
