“Almost without exception, every design decision I have made, encouraged, or mediated in fifty years as an architect has been intended to reinforce a contribution to the common good. The sixteen projects of Build, Memory are committed to principles of community, history, and environment to embody that objective and to realize the obligations of the architect.”

““If you were born in Agadir, Morocco, you would not want to live anywhere else.” So the saying goes in my hometown. This city, with a beautiful sandy beach and clear sunny days most of the year, shaped my career as a tour leader.”

Empire: Eva Rothschild

Public Art Fund

“In Empire, her first public art commission in the United States, Irish artist Eva Rothschild (b. Dublin, 1971) has created a monumental, multidirectional archway. Responding to the site, a point of transition between city and park, Rothschild has taken inspiration from the naturally arching canopy formed by Central Park’s mature trees. The linear structure takes root at ten points on the plaza, touching down lightly as its branching form rises above us.”
