Spring Dialogues, 2019

Filming Spring Dialogues marks a special and exciting moment. I have started it last year in the spring as a seasonal and curated talk show about the events in the world of design and architecture. This spring we will air three episodes. In Architecture, I will host the following talents: Michael Ellenbogen who is working on a documentary entitled ‘It Happened Over Lunch’ about the history of the Four Season Restaurant, the American icon and NYC seminal success which had come to change the way Americans experienced fine dining and which for the 57 years of its existence was considered the world’s most beautiful restaurant; Richard Southwick, partner and Director of Historic Preservation at BBB who is responsible for the restoration of the TWA Terminal, the most celebrated architecture icon of the postwar years, which will open as a lobby of a hotel at JFK Airport next month; Gabrielle Esperdy, the architecture critic on the demolition of 270 Park Avenue, which will be the world’s tallest building to be voluntarily demolished in history, and on the story of this building which started as a glamour example of corporate modernism, designed by Natalie de Blois, and which will become a myth because of this demolition; William Middelton who has worked for nearly 15 years on a new a fascinating biography of the celebrated art collectors Jean and Dominique de Menil whose taste for the modern was fully expressed in their dream house, designed by Philip Johnson in Huston in the late 40s; Winka Dubbeldam, the leading and influential force in ×İrchitecture research and sustainability and founder of the international architecture firm Archi-Tectonics, the subject of a new exhibition at Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin. Here are some great moment in the process of filming this series. Stay tuned. This series is supported by Rago Auctions and Elizabeth Collective.
