    How did we get here? NYC Design: 1985-Today


    1985 – 2000: Modern Reinventions
    Modernism comes back hard with lots of new ideas, thanks to the launch of the International Contemporary Furniture Fair launch (1988) and shows like the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition “Mutant Materials” (1995). In 2001, terrorist attacks bring a sobering and retrenching: Green design, preservation and a gentle minimalism pervade the city’s rebuilding. Friends of the High Line is formed (1999).

    2000 – Today: Color, Funk and Diversity
    A varied and colorful era emerges, thanks to cultural diversity, starchitect invaders, and computer-toting blobbies like Asymptote and Karim Rashid. Our midcentury fling helps: Gensler revises Eero Saarinen’s TWA Building for JetBlue, for example (2008). Still vying for a large chunk of commissions are holdout traditionalists, epitomized by Robert A.M. Stern’s 15 Central Park West (2008), and the high modernists – among them Richard Meier’s West Village condos and Renzo Piano’s New York Times Building (2007).
