New York Architect Paul Byard To Speak At U.Va.

February 1, 2001 -- Paul Byard, an expert in the blending of old and new architecture in the urban landscape, will present the Career Forum Lecture at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture. Byard will speak at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 16, in Campbell Hall, Room 153.

Byard is the author of the critically acclaimed book, "The Architecture of Additions," which offers comprehensive reviews of more than 60 additions to historic buildings including the Louvre in Paris, St. Peter’s in Rome and the recently completed addition to Berlin’s Reichstag. The book deals with the economic, political and aesthetic concerns of integrating the design and regulations associated with landmark buildings.

Director of the Historic Preservation Program at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and adjunct professor of architecture, he has also been director of the Architectural League of New York since 1994. Before becoming an architect, Byard practiced law and served as associate general counsel of the New York State Urban Development Corporation.

Byard and his architectural firm, Platt, Byard, Dovell, are widely recognized for their successful blending of old and new architecture and the design of new buildings in complex contemporary contexts, including the New 42 Studios in New York’s 42nd Street entertainment district, and the Chanel building on 57th Street.
