Landmarks Commission Votes to Calendar Ambassador Grill and Hotel Lobby
On September 20, 2016 the LPC voted unanimously to calendar for designation the United Nations Hotel Ambassador Grill and Hotel Lobby. These rooms are significant examples of Late and Post-Modern design by the internationally-acclaimed architectural firm Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates. Lavish and well preserved, these sparkling public interiors skillfully blend modern and historical forms. Completed seven years apart, they incorporate distinct stylistic vocabularies that express the shifting character of American architecture in late 1970s and early 1980s. Calendaring is the first step in the designation process; the next step is the public hearing, which will take place on November 22 (note correction from previously stated October 25 date).
