Re: Modern Icons in the 21st Century
The United Nations Capital Master Plan
Historic preservation and sustainable design pose special challenges in the renovation and energy-efficient retrofit of classic early works of International Style modernism. The United Nations Capital Master Plan addresses complex issues of architecture, curtain wall design and technology, building systems, and landscaping with a thorough, state-of-the art strategy and nearly $1.9 billion budget. The project encompasses the entire complex including the Secretariat, General Assembly Building, and South Annex and Library buildings and will be presented by the project’s leadership and key consulting architects and engineers.
