Imminent Demolition Feared for United Nations Plaza Hotel's Iconic Postmodern Interior



Quote:
Last week, a group of advocates filed an urgent Request for Evaluation with the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the Ambassador Grill & Lounge and Hotel Lobby at the United Nations Plaza Hotel (now ONE UN New York). These interiors, designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates, and completed in 1975 and 1983, respectively, are spectacular luxurious rooms, which use mirror, pattern, and lighting to trick the eye into seeing palatial space, daylight, and high ceilings where there are actually none. The Roche Dinkeloo interiors are also among few intact examples of 1970s style left in the city, intended by the architects to draw the prismatic curtain walls of One and Two UN Plaza inside, creating a total work of architecture akin to that across the street at the United Nations proper.

The request was urgent because, though no permits have been issued by the Department of Buildings, Millennium Hotels has made no secret of their plans to update the property. The windows to the Ambassador Grill were recently papered over and Docomomo US reports that some exploratory demolition has taken place—illegally. I urge the Landmarks Preservation Commission to hold an expedited hearing and to keep close watch over 44th Street. We should not allow a repeat of what happened to Frank Lloyd Wright's Park Avenue Mercedes Benz showroom: demolition when no one's watching.

What a shame, those are beautiful! Like they did with modernism recently, postmodernism needs to be viewed as a historically valuable style.

Cathedral Place, Vancouver (built in 1989). This building was erected instead of a demolished skyscraper in the art deco style; as for me, I like a new building more than the old one.

So I guess we need to have this debate as a lot of these are not what I think of as Post Modern... what exactly is post-modern? To me, I have always thought of it as a reactionary style, one of taking some modern design ideas, namely thinking in 3 dimensional volumes and construction techniques, but then breaking away from modern by embracing applied decoration, namely in classic architectural elements (arches, columns, finials, statues, etc.). How do you define post-modern?

The term itself explains a lot about this particular architectural style. It emerged as a reaction to the modernism that was built during the first half of the 20th century. As a movement it probably became more prominent after the 70's. Plenty of buildings after that period could easily be perceived as postmodern, no matter if they have a lot of ornamentation or not. So, basically it's pretty much different from modernism, form is adopted for its own sake, while in modernism the famous principle was - form follows function. That's how I perceive postmodern. I hope my post is useful.

1970s - 90s architect's failure to make architecture as beautiful as it used to be many decades ago that resulted in 90% of the projects they did being kitsch.

Too bad Manchester is tearing down such an interesting postmodern piece, replacing it with something rather random
