New York/Tri-State chapter presents Albert Ledner: Buildings for the National Maritime Union

invite

Between 1954 and 1967 Albert C. Ledner, AIA, designed 14 projects for the National Maritime Union. Four were built in New York; all are expressive mid-century modern. In 2003 the dormitory building was reborn as the signature Maritime Hotel. The future of the Curran/O’Toole Building will be determined as Saint Vincent’s hospital moves forward with its plans for a new hospital. DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State has invited Mr. Ledner to present the inside story on his work for the Union, with emphasis on the New York projects.

Modernist Theater Under Threat!

Located in downtown Baltimore, the Morris A. Mechanic Theater is both an architectural and historical landmark that contributes greatly to the fabric of Baltimore as a city. However, the theater has been acquired recently after sitting empty for three years. Although no firm plans have been announced, various commercial and residential developments have been mentioned and the theater’s interiors have been partially demolished. With these recent activities and as part of a move by the Baltimore Commission for Historic and Architectural Preservation to recognize the significance of historic buildings before they are under threat of imminent demolition, the commission is considering the theater for landmark status.
