As part of New York’s architecture and design festival Archtober, the winning competition proposal for the redesign of 1014 Fifth Avenue is currently on display within the building. The 1906 townhouse is owned by the German government and will be renovated and reconfigured to become a cultural centre for transatlantic dialogue and exchange between Germany and the USA. The design opens up the house to promote the sharing ideas, building on its domestic history as a former German ambassador’s residence to combine a residency scheme with a public programme.

The exhibition, 1014 Past and Future, is open to the public on 1014 Fifth Avenue until 17 October and is accompanied by a series of events, including a conversation between David Chipperfield and Barry Bergdoll (Professor of Art History and Archaeology, Columbia University) at 16.00 EST on Saturday 16 October.
