Panel discussion with Isabelle Gournay and Marie-Laure Crosnier Leconte
This panel discussion explores new research on American architects who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and their French classmates who taught or practiced in the U.S. Panelists will focus on the Beaux-Arts contingent active in New York City around 1913. This group includes Columbia professor Alfred Dwight Forster Hamlin and design luminaries such as Whitney Warren, Ernest Flagg, Harvey Wiley Corbett and John Russell Pope. Firms such as Carrère and Hastings, Delano and Aldrich, Herts and Tallant, George & Edward Blum, which played a key role in shaping New York’s architecture, also find their origins in friendships nurtured at the École.
Isabelle Gournay is Architecte DPLG, Ph.D. and Associate Professor of Architecture, University of Maryland. Marie-Laure Crosnier Leconte is Conservateur en chef du Patrimoine and Researcher at the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art in Paris
Event co-sponsored by the Columbia Maison Française and the French Heritage Society
