Architectural historian Timothy Rohan lectures on Manhattan’s lost but remarkable Modernist domesticinteriors. Between 1965 and 1985, New York architects such as Paul Rudolph, Robert A.M. Stern, Charles Gwathmey, and Alan Buchsbaum explored innovative aesthetic, spatial, and social dimensions for living when they renovated Manhattan apartments, townhouses, and lofts. Seizing the interior from interior designers, they saw it as a realm for experimentation, a way to expand or establish their reputations, and eventually as an important source ofincome in the deepening recession of the 1970s.
