Icons of Design
Renzo Piano (born September 17, 1937)
Centre Pompidou in Paris is one of Piano's signature works, and a staple of Parisian modern architecture.
565 Broome, Piano's first residential project in New York, is defined by walls of glass and a curved silhouette.
Spotlight on Renzo Piano
Famed Italian architect Renzo Piano is known for his delicate and refined approach to building, deployed in museums and other buildings around the world. Awarded the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1998, he has been compared to such greats as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Brunelleschi.
Born in Genoa, Italy in 1937, Piano was born into a family of builders. Originally expected to follow the family tradition, he chose to study design in Milan, with success coming to him early, when he won the design competition for the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Completed in 1978, the Centre has since become a cultural icon.
Following such success, he established his own design and architecture firm in 1981, and has gone on to receive numerous awards and recognition over the years. Highlights of his career include the world’s largest air terminal in Osaka Bay, Japan, the conversion of a 1920's Fiat manufacturing plant in Turin, Italy, and the San Nicola Soccer Stadium in Bari, Italy. Renzo has recently taken his word-class talents to the Big Apple, with his first New York City residential project, 565 Broome Street, rising high above historic SoHo. Enjoy our collection of Renzo's finest constructions around the world.

Summer Escape Round-Up
New York City gets hot, hot, hot and often unbearably humid in the summer, with many New Yorkers escaping to enjoy breezier, more temperate locales. Whether you prefer the beach or the mountains, there's so many options all within driving distance, and we're breaking them down for you:
The Hamptons: Colloquially referred to as "Out East," the Hamptons is the quintessential New York City summer outpost. About 2 hours east of Manhattan, the Hamptons is a collation of towns defined by pristine beaches, manicured lawns, and sprawling estates. Its town centers Southampton and East Hampton offer fine dining, amazing shopping and vibrant nightlife that even rival Manhattan. And if you want a more casual, "no frills" alternative, head to the quaint hamlet of Quogue, or venture further east to Montauk.
The Adirondacks: Not a fan of the beach? Drive north and explore the lush, mountainous landscape of the Adirondacks. Approximately 5 hours north of the city, the Adirondacks offers lakeside living, hiking, and quiet solitude. Whether you enjoy one of its lakeside resorts, like Lake George or Lake Placid, or placing bets at the races in Saratoga Springs, the Adirondacks offers diverse options for both exciting entertainment and ultimate relaxation.
The Berkshires:You don't have to drive 5 hours to disconnect from hectic city life - the Berkshires is only half the drive, and equally transporting. Located in the southwestern corner of Massachusetts, the Berkshires is known for a vibrant arts scene - with many fine museums and superb music festivals. Popular events include summer performances by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, theater at Shakespeare & Company, and the country’s longest running dance festival, Jacob’s Pillow.
Cape Cod: If you want a slice of classic Americana, look no further than Cape Cod and its neighboring islands Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Quaint fisherman villages line the white-sand beaches along the Massachusetts shores, dotted with seaside resorts, Shaker style homes, and the best lobster rolls and "chowda" in New England. High-speed ferry and plane service provide easy access from New York.
