October 8, 2013 | Chicago's Uptown neighborhood is tucked between the high-end shops of Michigan Avenue and the outskirts of suburban Evanston. In the early twentieth century large numbers of Austro-Hungarian Jewish immigrants settled there, until new roads and growing incomes pulled them away from the city in the years after World War II. They left behind the apartments, stores, and synagogues their parents had helped build.
In the 1920s two Uptown congregations merged and decided to build a magnificent synagogue. Chicago architect Henry Dubin (1892-1963) of Dubin and Eisenberg began work on the twenty-two-hundred-seat facility in 1922. As described by Vincent Michael, John H. Bryan Chair in Historic Preservation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the building was constructed in several stages using multiple architectural styles including Romanesque entryway arches, baroque windows, and an art deco parapet. It is, Michael says, "a unique piece of architecture in Chicago."
October 8, 2013 | Call it cultural vandalism: The case against the Museum of Modern Art's plan to raze the former building of the American Folk Art Museum designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien and completed in 2001.
"Tod Williams and Billie Tsien's new American Folk Art Museum...is not only New York's greatest museum since Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim was completed in 1959, but nothing less than the city's best work of architecture since then, period."
House & Garden, 2001
"...the Museum of Modern Art has not yet offered a compelling justification for the cultural and environmental waste of destroying this much-admired, highly distinctive twelve-year-old building."
ARCHITECTURAL LEAGUE OF NEW YORK,
in an open letter to the Museum of Modern Art, 2013
"Midtown and MoMA could both use more variety, serendipity and soul. The former folk art museum building, having all those things, isn't an obstacle to progress but an opportunity."
New York Times, 2013
