Global Architects, you are ignoring your most important customers: Baby Boomers like me

 


Screen shot by Joel Solkoff showing how the New York City architecture firm of Steven Holl violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by deliberately designing a library where the fiction collection is not accessible to paraplegics like me. The Queens/Long-Island City/Hunters-Point New York City library that opened up September 2019–designed by over fed over priced under educated architects who act as if it is 1954 and Dwight D. Eisenhower, formerly President of Columbia University. Is now President of the United States. Elvis is just being launched in his career.

“Civics as an art has to do not with imagining an impossible [utopia] where all is well, but with making the most and best of each and every place, and especially of the city in which we live.”–Patrick Geddes

Shameful scandal in the Big Apple

January 24, 2020, Williamsport PA US

In September, Samuel Holt’s New York City architecture firm unveiled its library in Queens, the Borough in New York City where President Trump grew up. In November, New York’s Center for Independence  for the Disabled filed suit against the City of New York filed suit against  the City of New York for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act by building a library that patently excludes disabled children and adults from having access to the library’s collection. Especially egregious is the fact that spending for the library was obscenely high costing over $41.5 million.

“Twenty-nine years after the ADA promised open doors and equal opportunities for people with disabilities, we find the doors of a brand new library shut to children and adults with disabilities. This should not be allowed to happen. Queens Borough Public Library and the City of New York must obey the law and make this right,” Susan M. Dooha, Executive Director of plaintiff Center for Independence of the Disabled – New York.

The bottom line is the Center for the Independence for the Disabled will win the lawsuit. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into law in 1990  by a Republican President promises more than it can deliver. This shameful situation—in which New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, elected to office promising to provide and protect housing for the City’s most vulnerable residents, once again disappointed.

Nearly ten years have passed since the Queens library faced a series of delays. Mayor de Blasio spent far too much time failing to do his duty far as the ex officio official to the group planning the library.

In future columns, I will discuss in detail Mayor de Blassio failure to do his job for New York’s most vulnerable citizens. Shame on Mayor de Blasio. Today, we kick off this far reaching Queens library scandal that will have far reaching implications for global architects for the next fifty years.

Today, Joel’s Column focuses my condemnation on the architect Steven Holl because he failed to do his job as an architect.  primarily for architects in the architect, engineering, and construction community and edited by architects is casting in this column shame on Steven Holt who personally and as the leader of his firm has acted in a matter which requires that Steve Holl have his license to practice architecture in New York State suspended with cause.

Enter Canadian architects as the whit horse cavalry

Today’s column kicks off a series of columns in the aftermath of a major disability-related scandal in the New York City Borough of Queens, where President Trump grew up. At the heart of the scandal is the New York City architecture firm of Steven Holl.

Following the story of Steven Holl who like me is 72 years old. Unlike me, Holl is in no way sensitive to problems of disabled people. Holl is sensitive to other things. At Columbia University ( my alma matter ), Holl teaches a course in the relationship of art to architecture:

After delays of nearly 10:years Stephen Ho the which unveiled its disabilty unfriendly $41 million library.

The scandal concerns a library at the Hunters Point section of Queens close to the booming community of Long Island City. When the library was completed in September 2019, the fiction collection was not accessible to wheel-chair based adults like me. The children’s reading room could not accommodate disabled children in wheelchairs.

Global implications of the scandal caused by the global architecture form of Steven Holl

In September 2019, the Manhattan based firm of Steven Holl unveiled its library which had been years (decades) in the making for a whopping $40 plus million.

Good day Kristy: I am a 72 year old grandfather, paraplegic, and survivor of four concerts. I am also the US architecture critic for e-architect UK. These are my past five years of columns. https://www.e-architect.co.uk/columns

I am devoting my column to the horrible indecency of building a $41 million library in Queens which is not accessible to children nor adults. I would like to talk to you for ten minutes by phone to understand how this obscenity took place and about what we in the disability rights community plan to do about it.

Architecture scandal rocks New York City

This is the offensive Hunter’s Point Library in Queens, the New York City Borough of Queens where President Trump spent his childhood. The library was designed by the Samuel Holt New York City firm of Samuel Holt which boasts of its international projects.
What makes this structure offensive is that despite its high costs and numerous construction delay, disabled children cannot attend book readings because the children’s portion of the library is not accessible. And there is more—the subject of a major law suit brought by a powerful City-based disability rights group.

As I resume my column on the bleak last days of December 2019, the AEC community in New York is rocked by a major scandal with international consequences given that the AEC community, most especially in the developed world is global in nature.

The scandal concerns the unveiling of a $42 million plus building of Queens, one of New York’s five boroughs. The architect is Steve Hall, a NY City based firm that boasts of its international projects. The architecture firm and the library itself are being sued in federal court for violations of the Americans with Disability Act. In the public mind, the ADA is a powerful tool, but the reality is that the ADA is something of a paper tiger.

The court could rule that the ADA does not prevent the library and the City of New York from refusing to provide wheel chair access to disabled children to having stories read to them. Only children who can walk are currently being served in this brand new $47million plus building. If the case looses in court, I am convinced Congress will renovate the ADA so it is effective.

Here is the story in a local Queen newspaper:

++++

“Disability rights advocates have filed a class-action lawsuit arguing that the brand new Hunters Point Library in Queens prevents people with mobility issues from “full and equal access” to the branch.

“The lawsuit, filed in Brooklyn federal court by the Center for Independence of the Disabled New York (CIDNY), argues that the Steven Holl Architects-designed library violates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). After two decades of planning, the $41 million branch opened in Long Island City this September to glowing architectural reviews, but soon came under fire because sections of the library are inaccessible to wheelchair users and others with limited mobility.

“Disability Rights Advocates is handling the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiffs and claims that “inaccessible features pervade” the new branch, and calls out three levels with bookshelves, a reading and small-group space in a children’s section, and a rooftop terrace for featuring accessibility barriers that prevent “full and equal enjoyment” of the library.”

Column mottoes and theme song

  1.  “A building should not stand out. It should fit in.” —Lewis Mumford, architectural critic, The New Yorker Magazine. (See footnote 1)

2. “Nothing about us without us.” Theme of the international disability rights movement (2)

3. “The Devil is in the details.” Popular English language expression

4. “You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.”

Theme song: “Time is on my side” by the Rolling Stones

Correction required for you in the AEC community

For the past five years, Joel’s column has been urging architects, engineers and others in the construction industry who are part of the AEC to prepare for the retirement of the Baby Boom generation.

Throughout  Germany


 
“The German student movement (also called 68er-Bewegung, movement of 1968, or soixante-huitards) was a protest movement that took place during the late 1960s in West Germany. It was largely a reaction against the perceived authoritarianism and hypocrisy of the West German government and other Western governments, and the poor living conditions of students. A wave of protests—some violent—swept West Germany, fueled by violent over-reaction by the police and encouraged by contemporary protest movements across the world. Following more than a century of conservatism among German students, the German student movement also marked a significant major shift to the left and radicalization of student activism.”

“Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union
“Prague Spring and Human rights movement in the Soviet Union
In what became known as Prague Spring, Czechoslovakia’s first secretary Alexander Dubček began a period of reform, which gave way to outright civil protest, only ending when the USSR invaded the country in August.[38] In August the 25, anti-war protesters gathered in Red Square only to be dispersed. It was titled the 1968 Red Square demonstration.”

We at Columbia University’s Morningside Heights campus at West 116th Street in New York City ( two blocks from the Hudson River and 24 blocks from the heart of Harlem) led the world as the initiator of the Spring 1968 anti-War youth movement

The Paris demonstrations were in April. By then I was a veteran demonstration having spent nearly a week living in the office of the President of Columbia University— which had been Columbia University Oresidet Dwight David Eisenhower’s office immediately before he went to his White House Oval Office.

“Beginning in May 1968, a period of civil unrest occurred throughout France, lasting some seven weeks and punctuated by demonstrations, general strikes, and the occupation of universities and factories. At the height of events, which have since become known as May 68, the economy of France came to a halt.[1] The protests reached such a point that political leaders feared civil war or revolution; the national government briefly ceased to function after President Charles de Gaulle secretly fled France to Germany at one point. The protests spurred movements worldwide, with songs, imaginative graffiti, posters, and slogans.[2][3].”

In the spring of 1968–two months before the Paris demonstrations streamed above—Columbia University became the global leader of the anti-Vietnam War Movement whose international dimensions reached impressive demonstrations not only Paris, but….

Note well. The Paris Revolution was in May. Ours was in April. The Paris student movement ( as was the case with a desperate assortment of student movements—real or pretend—in China, Poland, Cuba ER centers poured money into the Columbia arise fund which had trouble spending the money. I was just hanging around the Strike Committee in Ferris Booth Hall when a Committee member shouted to a group of us, “Does anyone want this airline ticket to Lincoln Nebraska. The plane leaves from LaGuardia at eight tonight.
I had never been to Nebraska. Why not?

.The medieval European notion: “We sit on the shoulders of giants”applies applies to the student youth movement ( in addition to our brand of selective pacifism— which included but was never distracted from its anti War anti-racism.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Speech_Movement
The Free Speech Movement (FSM) was a massive, long-lasting student protest which took place during the 1964–65 academic year on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley.[1] The Movement was informally under the central leadership of Berkeley graduate student Mario Savio.[2] Other student leaders include Jack Weinberg, Michael Rossman, George Barton, Brian Turner, Bettina Aptheker, Steve Weissman, Michael Teal, Art Goldberg, Jackie Goldberg, and others.
“With the participation of thousands of students, the Free Speech Movement was the first mass act of civil disobedience on an American college campus in the 1960s.[4] Students insisted that the university administration lift the ban of on-campus political activities and acknowledge the students’ right to free speech and academic freedom. The Free Speech Movement was influenced by the New Left,[5] and was also related to the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Vietnam War Movement.[6] To this day, the Movement’s legacy continues to shape American political dialogue both on college campuses and in broader society, impacting on the political views and values of college students and the general public.”
Until the spring of 1968, my generation’s university leader in our Revolution ( we did indeed call it a revolution) was the Free Speech Movement at the University of California in Berkeley—radical chic Berkeley then is still radically chic Berkeley today where automobile and truck access to the university and the community is strictly limited. Architects, engineers and members of the construction (AEC) community who regard themselves as city planners ( although populated in large part by those who do not have a though of their own) study Berkeley then and Berkeley now as the way to go in a building a society where the dangers to living well are institutionalized by freeing us from dependence gas-guzzling vehicles.

Writing for architects on your role in what is no longer the “retirement” of Baby Boomers like me. Retirement is a strange word. At age 72 I have no intention of retiring. Frank Geary will never retire.

Ask Renzo Piano when he will retire.

The word retire has legal implications. When I turned 65, I became a social security recipient receiving monthly wire transfers which reprints most of my income. I also receive Medicare, a US government run health service for the elderly and disabled. Medicare is not as good as it needs to be.

Functionally, the word retire functions as a demographic marker. See look how many people there are over the age of 65 in Japan, the EU, Scotland, Indonesia.

There are a lot of us Baby Boomers ( a US Census definition).

 

y Baby Boom  Generation’s birth was sparked by the passion unleashed by the end of World War II .

1945

We were loved and cherished by our parents as their parents were not.

We Baby Boomers are the best educated generation in the history of the world.

As a generation, we have more money than those of you architects who are members of Millennial and  younger generations. We Baby Boomers have  more economic and political power than you young folk. Beware

. You are not taking care of the needs of the generation that pays your bills,

In November a major scandal broke out that is going to rock the world of every major architecture firm in the world. Hold onto your hats, global architects!

Letter to Marie Rodell June 1973

Wikipedia

Marie Freid Rodell (January 31, 1912 – November 9, 1975) was a literary agent and author who managed the publications of much of environmentalist Rachel Carson‘s writings, as well as the first book by civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr..

Rodell was born in New York City, and attended Vassar College (B.A. 1932). After nine years as an editor for mystery novels, Rodell formed her own literary agency in 1948.[1] That year she met Rachel Carson, who hired her. She worked with Carson for the remainder of Carson’s life, and after Carson’s death in 1964 became her literary executor; she compiled and organized the Rachel Carson Papers (which took over two years) and arranged for the posthumous publication of A Sense of Wonder.[2] In 1957 she was Martin Luther King, Jr.’s literary agent for Stride Toward Freedom.[1]

“Dear Marie:

Monday, I visited Timothy Lear in Folsom Prison. I am now on his approved visiting list and am able to to wee him four times a month, six hours at a stretch. My visit convinced me your advice is sound. My relationship with Tim and Joanna is clearly wasting my time.

Joanna was in New York last week becoming famous for Bantam Books. I very much wanted you and she to meet. She is in need of some intelligent information on why it is that most people do not regard Tim Leary as the messiah.

Joanna is a brilliant woman who is very much in love with Timothy Leary. She is frightened because she suspects Tim’s claims of omnipotence will suddenly manifest themselves as nonsense.

Joanna fears the time may come when she will be unable to remain in love with the man for whom she abandoned everything.

To Curb Illegal Immigration, DHS Separating Families At The Border

Immigrants make their way towards the border crossing in Tijuana, Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security has undertaken its most extreme measure yet to discourage asylum seekers from coming to the U.S. — family separation.

A 39-year-old mother is named as Ms. L in a lawsuit brought against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security by the American Civil Liberties Union. Ms. L traveled with her 7-year-old daughter, named as S.S., from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Mexico. They surrendered to immigration agents at the San Ysidro Port of Entry near San Diego in December and asked for asylum. They said they were fleeing violence in DRC.

The mother is being held in the Otay Mesa Detention Center in San Diego, Calif. by Immigration and Customs Enforcement; her daughter is 2,000 miles away at a youth shelter in Chicago run by the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. They are only able to speak by phone.

“When the daughter was taken, she (Ms. L) could hear her daughter in the next room, screaming, ‘Mommy, don’t let them take me!'” said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project.
