Some of the most exciting and most sustainable design work happening in New York today involves the adaptive reuse of old buildings and spaces. Join design and project management leaders from KARO Architects, Paratus Group and Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates—members of the team behind the winning proposal for the renovation of 1014 Fifth Avenue—for a moderated conversation about their approach to restoring and transforming existing spaces. How do they balance historic preservation with contemporary needs? Hosted by exhibition curator and architecture historian Gideon Fink Shapiro. Gideon Fink Shapiro, Ph.D., is an author and curator focusing on architecture, landscape, and urbanism. A contributor to journals such as Architect, Domus, Places, and The Avery Review, he brings a historical perspective to the study of contemporary design. His recent books include 50 Lessons to Learn from Frank Lloyd Wright (with Aaron Betsky) and The New Residential Colleges at Yale: A Conversation Across Time (with Robert A.M. Stern). Based in Brooklyn, Gideon has taught courses at University of Pennsylvania and Virginia Tech. He frequently collaborates with design firms and nonprofits. KARO Architects is a New York based practice with experience in residential, commercial and institutional projects of varied scales. The common theme that ties their projects together is the search for unique contemporary solutions, tailored to each client’s specific requirements and interests. Often this entails conversations with and within existing architectures, which shape the discourse held in their studio. KARO Architects was founded by Sebastian Kaempf and Anke Roggenbuck in 2013. Their collaboration began ten years prior as colleagues at a renowned architecture firm in NYC, where they teamed up on residential and commercial interiors as well as ground-up construction in the public and private realm. Sebastian and Anke have extensive architectural experience, with inter-disciplinary studies in Germany, Great Britain, and the United States. KARO Architects are licensed in New York State, Massachusetts and Germany. Paratus Group was founded by Andrew Klemmer in 1997 to provide focused consulting for cultural projects involving complex programs, exceptional design, intricate construction, and highly creative global teams. With over thirty years of experience, Andy plays a key leadership role in each project undertaken by Paratus Group. Paratus grew out of a project that began in 1991, when Andy was chosen to oversee the expansion of the landmarked Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on Manhattan’s Museum Mile. Subsequently, he was asked to play a key role directing the planning and programming of Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain. Andy founded Paratus Group in order to provide these services to other cultural institutions. Paratus is unique in the field in that they take a leadership role in programming, planning and budgeting new institutions and they follow through by overseeing all of the design and construction. 1014: Past and Future comprises a weekend of architecture, culture and community. The program will feature an exhibition and talks at 1014 5th Avenue and guided walking tours in the Upper East Side neighborhood. Accessibility Statement: Unfortunately, 1014 Fifth Avenue needs to be refurbished and is not fully accessible in its current stage. We apologize to our guests and kindly ask you to contact j.stubbs@1014.nyc if you need further information or assistance. We will do our best to enable everyone to join us. COVID Protocols: For everyone’s health and safety, proof of COVID-19 vaccination (age 12+) -- either in digital or hard-copy form -- and masks (age 2+) are required for all visitors to 1014 5th Avenue. Hand sanitizer will be offered upon arrival.
