How can architecture bridge the past and the future? That is one of the questions that drives 1014: Past and Future, an exhibition about 1014 Fifth Avenue, a small building with a large cultural footprint. Today, the Beaux-Arts-style townhouse—one of the last of its kind along Museum Mile—stands on the cusp of change.

Colorful snippets from the building’s history as a former ambassador’s home and the German cultural center, Goethe House New York, are presented together with thoughtful renovation proposals by David Chipperfield Architects and other prestigious designers. Exploring the intersection of architecture, community, and culture, the exhibition offers a glimpse of a new cultural space in the making. The house, built in 1907, is reimagined as a one-of-a-kind hub for public programs and live-in fellows.

1014 is offering lectures, talks, and guided walking tours throughout the OHNY Weekend. An extensive program of lectures, talks, and art presentations (accessible with advance registration) will be presented from October 15th until October 17th and will be open to the public and free of charge. Experts will offer presentations and moderated talks on the reuse of historic townhouses, the stories behind UES mansions, and more. As part of the program, 1014 offers free walking tours with architects and historians through the Upper East Side. The tours start inside the exhibition 1014: Past and Future and will then venture into the neighborhood.
