Hosted by the Chicago-Midwest Chapter
Please join the Chicago ICAA for our inaugural luncheon entitled “Memory & Imagination with Sam White” at the Casino Club.
Stanford White’s portfolio includes houses ranging from shingled retreats to marble palaces, buildings and master plans for major institutional clients, and civic monuments, as well as jewelry, picture frames, furniture, and even covers for books and magazines. Sam White’s most recent book, Stanford White In Detail, keeps a tight focus on the signature ornamental details that animate Stanford White’s oeuvre, while this lecture considers the broader themes that unite the individual designs across the spectrum of his career.
Samuel G. White is a founder and consulting partner at PBDW Architects, a New York firm focusing on designs that introduce new interventions to historic settings. The firm’s work ranges from the restoration of the Park Avenue Armory, the Palace Theatre, and Astor Courts to reconfiguration of the New-York Historical Society, additions for Saint David’s School and Packer Collegiate Institute, and new designs for Learning Spring Elementary School, the Cooke School, and the Moise Safra Center.
Mr. White is the author of The Houses of McKim, Mead & White, Nice House, and Stanford White in Detail. He is co-author with Elizabeth White of McKim, Mead & White: The Masterworks and Stanford White Architect.
Mr. White is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, an Academician of the National Academy of Design, a trustee of Green-Wood Cemetery and the Saint-Gaudens Memorial, a member of the Advisory Board of the New York Landmarks Conservancy, and a former adjunct associate professor of Fine Arts at New York University. Mr. White is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania.
