Baker Hesseldenz: Dudley Chair

Dudley Chair

Dudley Chair

Baker + Hesseldenz Studio’s ‘Dudley’ gives dining chairs a good name by prioritizing luxury over pragmatism and comfort over idealism. It’s “crafted from walnut with solid-bronze slats that are individually hand-shaped in our shop to give the appearance that they have been ‘woven’ through the back structure. The back perches atop a tall comfortable cushion," says co-founder Scott Baker.

AIA New York: Center For Architecture


Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World

Date: Wednesday, February 13, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Location: At the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Pl., NYC

Credits: 1.5 LU 
Price: Free for AIA members, DOCOMOMO members, and students; $10 for general public

Architectural historian Dale Allen Gyure will discuss the career and life of Minoru Yamasaki (1912–1986), best know as the architect of the World Trade Center. Born to Japanese immigrant parents in Seattle, Yamasaki became one of the towering figures of midcentury architecture, even appearing on the cover of Time magazine in 1963. His self-proclaimed humanist designs merged the modern materials and functional considerations of postwar American architecture with traditional elements such as arches and colonnades. Yamasaki’s reputation began to decline in the 1970s with the mixed critical reception of the World Trade Center and the spectacular failure of St. Louis’s Pruitt-Igoe Apartments, which came to symbolize the flaws of midcentury urban renewal policy.

Gyure is the author of the first book to examine Yamasaki’s life and career, Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World, published in November 2017 by Yale University Press. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing from Yale University Press.

Speakers: Dale Allen Gyure, PhD, Professor and Associate Chair of Architecture, Lawrence Technological University; author, Minoru Yamasaki: Humanist Architecture for a Modernist World

Organized by: AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State

The Natural Dimensions Collection is a CONTRACT WALLCOVERING Finalist for the Best of Year Awards, hosted by Interior Design Magazine! The collection—a marriage between oversized digital motifs and hand-sewn felt accents by Daniel Tillman—consists of 4 non-repeating patterns with a total of 16 colorways. Natural Dimensions is a true expression of dimensional forms in nature and was born out of an expressed desire from the interior design + architect community to create softness and depth in a space.

New York Textile Month

New York Textile Month invites you to launch the locally sourced, designed and woven NYTB Project. 

These heirloom pieces are the culmination of a unique collaboration between the founder of NYTM and trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, along with Pascale Gatzen, co-founder of the worker cooperative ‘friends of light’. 

NYTB's are designed by ‘friends of light’, Lori Weitzner studio, Suzanne Tick Studio, Lidewij Edelkoort, Thompson St Studio & Hiroko Takeda Studio. Each uniquely designed blanket is woven by Terry Buck at her workshop in the Hudson Valley. The fine wool is made by Buckwheat Bridge Angoras in Elizaville, NY where the sheep are swaddled with blankets winter long.

Please join the founder, farmer, designer and weavers, and share the opportunity to promote and sustain New York Textile arts.
