This forum will focus on the many issues which need to be addressed for a new building to be a positive contribution to the urban fabric of a historic city with an already rich architectural heritage.
What makes for a successful infill building? Should a new building mimic its older neighbors or should it stand out? What are the issues that the architect should consider in designing an infill building?
Panelists include Julian Adams, of NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation; Patrick Quinn, Dean Emeritus of the RPI School of Architecture; John Mesick, of Mesick Cohen Wilson Baker Architects; Mark Thaler, of Mark Thaler, AIA, Architect; and Barbara Nelson, of the Troy Planning Commission. The forum will be moderated by Mark Mistur, Associate Dean of the RPI School of Architecture.
