Character Studies

Knowing what historic resources exist is a fundamental aspect of sustainable, effective planning. However, few cities have the time or resources to survey and analyze each building within their boundaries. Character studies are an innovative response to the challenge of producing practical, plan-ready data about historic resources across large areas quickly and inexpensively.

Whitney Studio Ceiling, New York

As one of the few surviving examples of the work of artist Robert Winthrop Chanler, the Whitney Studio stands today as a masterpiece of early twentieth-century decorative art. Located on historic MacDougal Alley in Greenwich Village, the site is positioned at what once was the center for the development of the early modern art movement in America.

Buildings, like people, pass through time. That passage, regardless of its duration, describes the lives of buildings. This project examines the relatively short life of an extraordinary building that played host to over six million visitors, the New York State Pavilion. Conceived, built and in use as designed for only two years, the Pavilion was witness to one of the most popular events of the 1960s, the New York World’s Fair.

Row of mausoleums in St. Louis Cemetery

The early cemeteries of New Orleans have long fascinated visitors to the city since in the early 19th century. Today, after 200 years as the city’s earliest surviving burial grounds, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 (1789) and the slightly later and larger St. Louis Cemetery No. 2 (1823) remain popular historic sites to increasing numbers of visitors to the French Quarter.

Brick and tile manufacturing was once ubiquitous throughout much of the United States. Today, however, only a fraction of these industrial complexes survive. Of those standing, almost none preserves the buildings and machinery, kiln technology, and overall industrial landscape as the Western Clay Manufacturing Company site on the outskirts of Helena, Montana.
