Francis Dzikowski photographed a winning project in Architect Magazine’s 2012 Design Awards.
H3 Hardy Collaborative‘s LCT3 Theater at Lincoln Center is the opening spread in the magazine’s award announcement in the December issue. LCT3 adds theater space on the roof of the original Eero Saarinen Vivian Beaumont Theater.
There are earlier EstoNews posts about the Theater from when Francis’ photographs were in Vanity Fair and at NPR.com.
Congratulations to the architect and the photographer.
The THINK! project, a cornerstone of IBM’s centennial year celebration that was designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates, is profiled in a recent AIGA Case Study.
“THINK: An Exploration into Making the World Work Better” was an exhibition experience that pushed the boundaries of technology as we know it. The goal of the project was to bring to life the ways in which people are making the world work better through innovation, and to engage people in some of the ideas around IBM’s Smarter Planet agenda. It was free to the public, drawing more than 25,000 diverse visitors—from heads of state to school kids—in its month-long run at New York City’s Lincoln Center. The broad goal was to engage new audiences across generations in a meaningful conversation about progress.
The AIGA Case Study, a selection from the 2012 “Justified” competition, describes the project in greater detail and includes more of Albert Vecerka’s photographs.
Francis Dzikowski’s photographs of LCT3 by H3 Hardy Collaboration Archtiecture are on the radio – at NPR.com. The images support the web version of Jeff Lunden’s piece titled In New York, Two Big Arts Institutions Go Small. You can listen to the story at All Things Considered.
The LCT3 Theater, looking to expand to a younger demographic, hired Hugh Hardy to design a new theater. The 112-seat Claire Tow Theater is housed in a two-story structure built on a steel truss that straddles the roof of the Vivian Beaumont Theater designed by Eero Sarinen. The interior is warm and inviting — reddish orange seats, surrounded by walnut paneling. But perhaps more striking is the view outside the auditorium — a spectacular vista of Lincoln Center and the surrounding neighborhood. The design also maintains the integrity of the original structure, effectively hiding on the roof, when in the outdoor plaza.
There is an earlier EstoNews post about a Vanity Fair article on the theater.
And, the story is listed at ArchNewsNow. Have a listen!
We recently got this note from Francis Dzikowski:
“Dana Meilijson, a photographer who often works with me, took this photograph while on the roof of Julliard photographing H3′s new LCT3 Theater.”
A review by Paul Goldberger of the H3/Hardy Collaboration Architecture’s Claire Tow Theater appeared in Vanity Fair. Read an earlier EstoNews post about the project here.
And, you can see Francis’ most recent portfolio here.
Paul Goldberger praises the new The Claire Tow Theater at Lincoln Center by H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture in a recent Vanity Fair article.
The new theater is an addition that sits atop the original Eero Saarinen building:
the only place that really made sense for it was on the roof of the existing building, set back so that it doesn’t disturb Saarinen’s enormous floating bar of travertine. You can see the addition if you enter the plaza from the east, but it disappears as you approach the Vivian Beaumont; the façade is still intact. And when you can see Hardy’s addition, it is a pleasing and deferential counterpoint to the original building: a smaller box on top of Saarinen’s bigger box.
Francis Dzikowski photographed the new project for the architects, more of these images are at EstoStock. In 1965, Ezra Stoller photographed the original project , those images can be seen at EstoStock as well.
And range of Francis’ recent work can be seen in his online portfolio.
Albert Vecerka’s images of the Rockwell Group’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center at Lincoln Center are featured in the September issue of Architectural Record, “Record Interiors 2011″.
The theater is largely framed by the surrounding Lincoln Center buildings.
Albert’s images show the street facade at 66th Street, the lobby and restaurants as well as the three theaters.
