Lynne Funk, AIA, principal of LFA Architects, will share her insight into the stringent architectural review standards in New York City’s historic districts. Funk, who holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the UK College of Design, will deliver “Process, Contemporary Design and Material Choices in NYC Historic Districts” on Tuesday, Nov. 21 from 1-2:30 p.m. in Pence Hall 209.
In this talk, Funk will examine how the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission review process shapes design, material choices and strategies for successful outcomes. Through LFA Architects, Funk has gained substantial experience in restoration of historic building exteriors as well as renovations in commercial, institutional and residential buildings.
She has been an advocate for art in building budgets and in New York City schools, working for better communication between communities and public officials. Funk also served on the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation’s Review Committee for Gansevoort Market in 2002. She was a key task force member of the private Save Gansevoort Market effort, which achieved historic district designation in 2003.
