ARCHITECTS MAZIAR BEHROOZ AND BRUCE ENGEL TALK WITH
LEVI SHAW-FABER ABOUT CRITICAL DEBATE IN DESIGN MAGAZINES, A PLAN TO RESHAPE EAST HAMPTON, AND THE LAUNCH OF LEVI’S
NEW DESIGN PUBLICATION END

The Program is Part of the Museum’s Series

The Parrish Art Museum presents architects Maziar Behrooz and Bruce Engel in a discussion focused on the revival of design publications as forums for critical dialogue on urban planning and architecture, with a focus on a proposal to redesign the Village of East Hampton. At the program, on Thursday, August 31, at 5pm, Behrooz and Engel will be joined by Levi Shaw-Faber, the editor of the new design magazineEnd, which will launch its first edition on August 24. The evening is part of the Museum’s ongoing series, Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation.

“Critical debate in architecture and urban planning is essential in this time of unstoppable growth,” said Corinne Erni, Curator of Special Projects at the Parrish Art Museum. “I welcome a lively discussion about rethinking and reshaping the East End with these creative thinkers and architects.”

The program begins with a presentation by Behrooz and Engel, of MB Architecture’s Summer Studio project, Restoring Forward: A Vision for East Hampton Village. The project, which will be featured in the first edition of End, was an independent initiative by the firm to reshape East Hampton Village’s Comprehensive Plan, created in 2001. Behrooz’s hope is that the program at the Parrish and the feature in End will begin a larger conversation that allows him the opportunity to present the plan to East Hampton Village and Town officials.

Restoring Forward was created as a plan to revitalize East Hampton Village and restore its original human character as a vibrant, cohesive town center. The plan proposes shifting activity and density away from Main Street and providing space for civic and community engagement by using key buildings anchored at the north end of Newtown Lane. New recreation and culture hubs will be supported by new infill housing in the Village—accessory structures such as sheds, barns, and small houses built on existing properties to create more affordable housing. A safe and pleasant walking and bike path will connect Village amenities to new hydroponic block-farms on Long Lane that extend via a narrower area along the railroad track and culminate in a symbolic point at the intersection of Newtown Lane and Railroad Avenue, providing access to the broader township.
