Edgar Tafel: the Architect and the Man

Edgar Tafel (1912-2011) was a Village architect known for his sensitivity to place and history. His buildings in the Village include the presbytery of First Presbyterian Church (Fifth Avenue) and St John’s in the Village (marking its 40th anniversary this month). This talk tells of Tafel’s time as a student and colleague of Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin, with video footage, and of his work as a builder and inspirer in Greenwich Village. It takes place in the church he designed: St John’s in the Village (corner of W 11th St and Waverly Place).

A drinks reception follows.
