Scope and Content

Series AP154.S1, Architectural projects, is chiefly composed of drawings related to architectural projects from the period 1966-2007. Most projects are located in the Northeastern United States, a notable exception being a study for resort development in Negril, Jamaica. The series includes published projects, such as the master plan for a new campus at Wykeham Rise School in Washington, Connecticut, housing projects at Twin Parks in the Bronx, N.Y. and at Little Italy in Manhattan, new and renovated buildings for the State University College at Potsdam, New York, and the George & Annette Murphy Center at Asphalt Green, New York. Small, lesser-known projects are also present, including two renovation projects in Brooklyn and a design for a Manhattan apartment. In general, the projects in this series are documented at a specific phase in their development, often at the stage of working drawings, although some project series are composed of design or presentation drawings. A substantial number of documents in this series are related to the Seagram Building at 375 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y., a landmark skyscraper designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson and completed in 1958. Beginning in 1971, Giovanni Pasanella and his partners were responsible for the interior design and space planning of national and regional administrative and sales offices of Joseph E. Seagram & Sons. The series documents three decades of activities related to the maintenance and renovation of the Seagram Building as well as some renovations for Seagram offices at 800 Third Avenue.
