Reimagined, Lincoln Center Steps Down From Its Podium

Ada Louise Huxtable: “By design, Lincoln Center was isolated from its surroundings. In accordance with one of the more faulty modernist practices of the day, it was built on a platform, or ‘podium’ (a favorite buzz word), separating it from the city streets and dedicating it to access by car.” In rebuilding the 50-year-old complex, architects are breaking down that bunker mentality, “reuniting Lincoln Center with the city.”
