Kramer Levin Again Takes Leading Role in Architecture Week

September 27, 2010

Kramer Levin is pleased to announce that, for the third consecutive year, it will serve as the lead sponsor of Architecture Week, a celebration of the best in architecture and design hosted annually by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Architecture Week events begin on Saturday, October 2nd, and run through Sunday, October 10th.

Kramer Levin’s ongoing support of Architecture Week stems from the firm’s long involvement with the land use approvals for some of the most ground-breaking architecture in the city. For example, the firm’s Land Use group recently handled approvals for the development next door to the Museum of Modern Art of a 1,050-foot-tall building designed by architect Jean Nouvel that will be the third tallest building in Manhattan; as well as approvals for a four-story addition to 980 Madison Avenue, the former Parke-Bernet Galleries, designed by architect Lord Norman Foster.

“We are pleased to continue our commitment to Architecture Week, particularly during this important period as development in New York gains momentum,” said Michael T. Sillerman, co-chair of Kramer Levin’s Land Use department. “We look forward to working with the many resourceful developers and architects in the New York area on projects exhibiting advanced and innovative design.”

Architecture Week takes place at the Center for Architecture and features numerous exhibition openings and programs culminating in the 2010 Heritage Ball at Chelsea Piers. Programs this year include some of the city’s leading architects addressing topics such as: A Conversation about Public Architecture; Better City / Better Life: Healthy & Sustainable Urbanization; the Empire State Building Retrofit; and A New Standard of Design Care.
