Peter Eisenman's victory in the competition to design a great new chunk of Midtown Manhattan marks another chapter in the impact of Phyllis Lambert, founder of the Canadian Center for Architecture, on the city skyline. It was she who persuaded her father, Edgar Bronfman, to commission the Mies Seagram tower on Park Avenue, thus changing the course of us architectural history. While the latest project will be significant, Lambert will have some way to go before she exercises the same influence on Manhattan as the Rockefellers. Not only was the family responsible for the Rockefeller Centre itself (John D R II), but also the World Trade Centre (built under the gubernatorial regime of Nelson R) and the Chase Manhattan hq (prop David R). And there is even the wonderful museum for medieval art, the Cloisters, on the northern tip of the city.
