Zoom lecture by Andrew Dolkart, at 6.00 pm (London). Beginning in 1908, the English émigré architect Frederick Sterner changed the character of New York’s ubiquitous but obsolete brick and brownstone houses. By transforming facades, interior plans and gardens, and furnishing the houses with English furniture and antiques, a new form of urban living was created. The lecture will trace this hitherto neglected area of architectural history and ask whether it also influenced developments in London.
