Open House New York (OHNY), has announced tickets are on sale for its benefit "Private Spaces/Private Access". According to the events website,
Over the next five weeks, OHNY will host five intimate cocktail receptions, providing unique access to innovative, inspiring and engaging spaces. Architects and designers will be on site to lead tours and talk about their work.Included as a part of this event is the Modulightor building, designed by Paul Rudolph in 1989. Again, from OHNY's website:
Designed and built by architect Paul Rudolph, this Manhattan townhouse serves as multi-use space. It is a private residence and home of the Paul Rudolph Foundation as well as a showroom and laboratory for Modulightor, a custom lighting company. The four-story steel structure building was one of the architect's last projects and demonstrates the spatial theories Rudolph was still testing late in his career. Paul Goldberger, the Architecture Critic for The New York Yorker and recipient of Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism, will lead the eveningâ€™s dialogue. In addition, tours of the building will highlight the townhouse's modular, cubist design and highly complex floor plan as well as Paul Rudolph's and Ernst Wagner's - the architect's close friend - extensive collections on display throughout the house.Event Information:
