Frick Forward: A Conversation

TEFAF New York; TEFAF Coffee Talk

October 2018 / New York, NY

Ian Wardropper, Director of The Frick Collection, joins Annabelle Selldorf, Principal of Selldorf Architects, in a lively point/counterpoint conversation with Carrie Rebora Barratt, CEO and President of the New York Botanical Garden. As Mr. Wardropper presents the puzzles of the Frick’s programmatic imperative, Ms. Selldorf supplies the architect’s solutions. The resulting visionary plans for renovation include the promise of visitation to the stunning second floor of the house, the preservation of the gardens and found spaces for conservation, educational programs, and the digital transformation of research in the renowned library. The conversation focuses on the efficacy of client and architect relationship on an historic building.
