The lobbies of New York City - soaring or compact, utilitarian or spectacularly decorated - operate at the juncture between outside and inside, mediating between the dynamic urban space of the metropolis and the precise, orderly space of the interior. The lobby adjudicates between conflicting speeds and scales. It builds nested layers of privacy and security, it buffers against environmental discomfort, it filters sounds and smells, softens lighting, stages the display of bodies, and it hints at aesthetic pleasures within. The lobby regulates, anticipates, welcomes, foreshadows, and shields. The interior design programs of Lebanese American University & Kent State University are offering a joint workshop to study the lobbies of New York City. Students from both countries will collaborate to document and analyze this remarkable category of interior space. We will also visit cultural institutions and design firms across the city.
