    Description

    DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State is collaborating with the Kips Bay Towers board to co-sponsor an open house as part of Open House New York Weekend 2009.

    Designed by I.M. Pei & Associates for legendary developer William Zeckendorf Sr., this innovative residential complex is among New York's most significant of the Post-War era in terms of both architecture and planning. Completed in 1963 and originally named Kips Bay Plaza, this was Pei’s first major project built in New York City and one of the most important of his early career. Zeckendorf was hand picked for this 3-block Title 1 urban renewal project by Robert Moses.

    This is a rare opportunity to visit the 3-acre private garden. DOCOMOMO docents will interpret the site and its significance.
