Untapped Cities Architecture and Design Tour of the Metropolitan Museum’s Engelhard Court
Nov 9, 2013 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm| $35
Located in the American Wing and notable for its vast open space and exquisite natural lighting, the Engelhard Court boasts a particular appeal for 19th and 20th century design enthusiasts. We’ll be learning about the Neoclassical facade of the Branch Bank of the United States, relocated from 15 ½ Wall Street and about the innovative stained-glass windows of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Moving through the room’s impressive collection of large-scale American sculpture, we’ll also examine structural details by Beaux Arts architect Stanford White, as well as pioneering modernist architect Louis Sullivan and his famously prolific student, Frank Lloyd Wright.
