Retrospective exhibition on view at Lipstick Building

NEW YORK, NY (Sept. 29, 2014) — The work of Cesar Pelli and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects is the subject of a retrospective exhibition now on view in the South Lobby of 885 Third Avenue. The display is the second in a photographic series celebrating world-class architects.

Beginning with Pelli’s early work with Saarinen and then with DMJM and Gruen Associates, the show features highlights from his distinguished career. The majority of the exhibition focuses on Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, drawing on projects from the firm’s 37-year history. Photographs of iconic projects such as Minneapolis Central Library and Torre Iberdrola are included.

The images are displayed in the south portion of the elliptical lobby. Viewings are open to the public free of charge, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Lipstick Building, designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee, is located on Third Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets. The cylindrical shape and red granite and steel façade suggest a tube of lipstick. It was purchased in 2010 by a group of investors including the Argentinian real estate firm IRSA.
