    Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile: Gallery Tour

    Many of New York’s grandest interior spaces of the early 20th century feature elegant structural tile vaults and domes built by the Guastavino Fireproof Construction Company—including the Municipal Building, St John the Divine, Temple Emmanuel, and Grand Central Terminal. Learn what makes this marriage of artistic beauty and engineering innovation so remarkable from guest curator Martin Moeller.
