Open House New York: Tour of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center

Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Lobby, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street/66 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY

Join Lyn Rice and Astrid Lipka of Rice+Lipka Architects for a tour of
this campus hub for Parsons The New School for Design.

The center, which won a National AIA Award for Interior Architecture, combines the ground floor of four historic buildings to create galleries, an auditorium, meeting and gathering spaces, and a new home for the
Kellen Archives, a significant collection of 20th century American
design. An important new downtown destination for art and design, the mission of the Center is to generate an active dialogue on the role of innovative art and design in responding to the contemporary world.

The center is named in honor of its primary benefactor, New School Trustee Sheila C. Johnson.
