New York Landmarks Conservancy Honors 2019 Winners of Lucy G. Moses Preservation Awards
The New York Landmarks Conservancy has announced the winners of the 2019 Lucy G. Moses Awards. For 29 years, the so-called “Oscars of Preservation” have recognized projects that demonstrate excellence in conserving and protecting the city’s architectural legacy. This year’s awards program honors 14 projects and one preservation: Staten Island Preservationist Barnett Shepherd.
Among the landmarks receiving awards this year is the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice. Designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo Associates in 1967 (and first published in RECORD in 1968), the Midtown Manhattan landmark reopened late last year after a renovation by Gensler. (Watch our videos about the project, below, with architect Kevin Roche and Ford Foundation President Darren Walker.) The Lower East Side’s Tenement Museum also made the annual list after a 2018 expansion by Perkins Eastman.
