A description from BHS:
"Featuring nearly forty different projects focused on the areas of Brooklyn Heights, South Street Seaport, SoHo, and the Upper East Side, Context\Contrast explores how new buildings and historic districts have learned to coexist in New York, the country's most culturally and architecturally diverse city. This traveling exhibition has been shown in New York, Washington DC, and Dallas, and concludes at BHS in Brooklyn Heights, the first historic district in New York."
As part of the exhibit, BHS is also hosting a forum on Nov. 2, at 7 p.m., which will include Otis Pearsall (who was one of the key players in getting Brooklyn Heights designated as the first Historic District), architect Hugh Hardy, Pratt Institute President Thomas Schutte, and Yolande Daniels, of Studio SUMO.
Tonight's opening gets underway at 6 p.m. BHS is at 128 Pierrepont St., Brooklyn Heights.
