    Jan Hird Pokorny Associates

    6:00 PM

    Self-portrait drawn by Jan in 1940 for his Christmas card    

    Come out and join us for an interactive and informative evening at the Manhattan offices of Jan Hird Pokorny Associates.  We are opening the JHPA archives and presenting examples of what the firm was designing from its inception as a Modernist design firm in 1946 through the firm’s early roots in historic preservation. We will also discuss JHPA’s more recent work including going back to their Modernist roots with the restoration at Manitoga. 

    JHPA has completed a broad range of commissions since its inception.  However, since the late 1960s,  the firm’s focus has increasingly been on architecture; planning; and preservation for historic buildings and sites. Today, almost all of the firm’s projects involve landmarked buildings deemed to be of local, state, or national significance. The firm’s commissions vary widely in scope and scale, but the common thread is work on landmarked historic structures whose restoration and preservation require sensitivity towards contextual planning and design, as well as knowledge of historic materials and construction techniques and current conservation practice. JHPA is committed to preserving the irreplaceable quality of older structures through harmonious designs, careful restoration of materials, and attention to detail.

    Significant milestone projects in the firm’s history will be presented through original drawings, photographs, renderings, and magazine articles.   The program will also include a brief discussion on Jan himself; his roots, early designs, and recollections from those who knew him well.  Part of the program will be presented in a more formal manner throughout the evening, while there will also be time to enjoy refreshments, network with a variety of professionals, and view various artifacts relative to JHPA’s history.
