39 East 13th Street with Philip Wu

Phillip Wu carefully restored the elegant cast-iron facade of this building, and then added a modern twist — three additional floors in transparent and translucent materials with colored lighting, drawing inspiration from but clearly contrasting with the 19th century body below. Part restoration, part new construction, the project updates one of the Village’s few surviving cast iron edifices.

This event is co-sponsored by the AIA Center for Architecture.
