Hear firsthand stories of the famed architects who worked on the Pan Am Building in this special talk and presentation by Richard Roth Jr., moderated by Justin Rivers.
Richard Roth Jr, was a fresh new architect right out of school and continuing the storied legacy of his family’s firm, Emery Roth and Sons, when Project X was thrown into his lap. It was slated to be a high-profile tower directly behind Grand Central Terminal that would change Park Avenue forever. The project would bring two of the biggest names in architecture together, Walter Gropius and Pietro Belluschi and it was Richard’s job to make sure it all came together. The result was a building that set the tenure of a late 20th Century Park Avenue and a structure that still fascinates New Yorkers today. Hear directly from Roth himself in this extraordinary live presentation he will lead for Untapped New York. Richard’s stories are rich, funny, and should not be missed.
- Learn the fascinating origin story of Project X and its unexpected funders

- Learn how Pan Am became involved and how the short-lived heliport made it to the roof
