The panel discussants are: the curator of the exhibition Landmarks of New York, Barbaralee Diamonstein – Spielvogel, (New York), Catherine Guyot, architect, (Paris) and Sotiris N. Papadopoulos, architect, (Athens), who is also the moderator of the discussion.
Barbaralee Diamonstein – Spielvogel presents a rich collection of landmark buildings from the Historic Landmarks Preservation Center of New York. Catherine Guyot presents and compares examples of architectural heritage from all three cities, highlighting the main theme of the discussion: the common ground the three cities share in their architectural experience deriving from buildings constructed in parallel historical periods and how this experience allows the cities to “meet” and “talk”. Sotiris N. Papadopoulos demonstrates why modern-day Athens (1834 to the present) is ″younger″ than New York and Paris by using archival photographic material.
In cooperation with the US Embassy in Athens.
