LongHouse Reserve Hosts Lectures on Long Island Modernism

authorStaff Writer on Sep 26, 2023

LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton continues “Long Island Modern,” its architectural lecture series, on Sunday, October 1, with a talk about Long Island post-war modernism and French architect and designer Pierre Chareau.

Bob Rubin and Alastair Gordon will deliver the lecture, introduced by Lee Skolnick.

On October 22, the next lecture will be on the second wave of post-war modernism on the East End and the innovative, neo-Corbusian works of Charles Gwathmey, Richard Meier, Barbara and Julian Neski, and Norman Jaffe, and the rise of a reactionary period of neotraditional architecture on the East End. Gordon will return to moderate. Speakers are to be announced.

The November 5 lecture is on post-9/11 modernism that began with “a turn against faux historicism in the early 2000s, and a return to the geometric clarity of post-war modernism,” according to LongHouse.

Projects by Barnes Coy Architects, Skolnick Architecture + Design and Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, among others,will be featured, as well as the most recent examples of mannerist modernism becoming mainstream on the East End.

Chris Coy and Skolnick will discuss, with Gordon as moderator.

Each lecture will run from 3 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $40, or $30 for LongHouse members. Longhouse Reserve is located at 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton. Visit longhouse.org to purchase.
