Robert C. Bates will discuss the removal of the architectural cast iron from the facade of 101 Spring Street in New York City. The renovations revealed the complexities of the structural systems hidden beneath. Over 1300 pieces of decorative cast iron were removed, catalogued, refurbished and reinstalled. A restored cornice and new wood windows, along with a full interior renovation, completed the comprehensive restoration of this SoHo Landmark, which is home to the Judd Foundation.
