Lincoln Center: Scraped, Torn and Reborn

New, 7 comments

The classic old Lincoln Center campus has been under re-construction for over a year now and what a mess they've made up that way. The big reflecting pool in front of the Vivian Beaumont Theater has lost both its water and its Henry Moore sculpture, Reclining Figure, all in anticipation of a big sloping growth of green grass. The huge platform that covered most of 65th Street has been ripped out, and construction there is forcing all the passers-by out into the street. Meanwhile, over at the building which houses Alice Tully Hall and the Juilliard School, everything from entryways to bookstores have been "temporarily relocated." Happily a few of the finishing touches from the design team of Diller Scofidio + Renfro have started to emerge, with big expanses of glass reflecting the work still underway.
