Architect Hugh Hardy is the quintessential New Yorker. His irrepressible love of the city animates all of his work, which can be found in numerous of the city’s most loved institutions: the magnificently restored Radio City Music Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and its Harvey Theatre, the New York Botanical Garden, the cafe at Bryant Park and the renovated New Victory and New Amsterdam theatres on Forty Second Street, among others. It is no coincidence that so many of these projects have been theatrical; Hardy began his career working under celebrated scenic designer Jo Mielziner and his career has ever since embodied his fascination with how people come together in public spaces as a form of theatrical display.
