PERIODS OF DECLINE, DISREPAIR AND ONWARD
Led by William Gati, with Ruben Ramales of AIA Queens

In this open-air lecture, we will focus on the Architecture of Imagination and how the Aquacade in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, captured both historical typologies and modern vision. We’ll discuss the concept, massing, perspective and form, and explore comparative structures from the same architect that established a typology. 


William Gati, RA, AIA is an Architect and licensed NYC Tour Guide. A former Chapter President of the Queens Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, he now serves as Chair of the Historic Tours Committee among other leadership roles. 

Ruben Ramales, Assoc. AIA, NOMA is the Executive Director of the Queens Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
