Please join us for a talk by architect Bruce Fowle, NA, about the evolution of 42nd Street and the Times Square area. Fowle and his firm played a major role in the development of this area over recent decades, designing six buildings between 53rd and 41st Street. This talk will address issues of physical design, zoning impacts, government oversight, and regulation of signage and street character, among other things, in a lecture illustrated with historic images and architectural designs. Bruce Fowle founded the firm now known as fxcollaborative in 1978, achieving international recognition for excellence in design over decades of work. Fowle and his firm have pioneered socially and environmentally responsible approaches to architecture and planning —most recently with the renovation and expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
