New York City’s Whitney Biennale has announced that a series of images from a new exhibition of architectural renderings and drawings will be exhibited at the festival.
The exhibition, called Women in Constructions, will include work by renowned architects John McBride and Michael Breen and includes works by such contemporary architects as William Williams and James Beard, as well as the Williams Brothers, whose architectural designs have been used to create such iconic buildings as the Chrysler Building in New York and the New York World Trade Center.
“Women in Construction will be the first-ever Whitney exhibition to feature the work of the iconic Williams Brothers and their partners, as the first ever Whitney exhibition of their architectural design to feature their architectural work,” Whitney curator of the Whitney, Jennifer Grosvenor, said in a statement.
“We are delighted to share this remarkable collection of renderings with the world.”
In an interview with the New Yorker, Williams Brothers associate general manager James Beard said that his father, James Beard Sr., had the pleasure of working with McBride, Breen, and others on the project.
“My dad was a very, very big admirer of their work and the importance of making it look good,” he said.
“They just did it really well.”
