Scope and Content

File documents an unsuccessful competition entry for eleven luxury townhouses and apartments in Manhattan, New York, United States. Material in this file was produced in 1978.

Based on conversation with Michael Wilford (2 May 2014), attribution of project has been revised to solely Jame Stirling, Michael Wilford, and Associates.

At a yet undetermined date in the late 1970s or early 1980s, the office of James Stirling and Partner became known as James Stirling, Michael Wilford and Associates. File documents for the Eleven Townhouses project do not allow attribution to one firm or the other.

File contains design development and presentation drawings as well as photographic materials.
