Matchmaker, Matchmaker: A Conversation with "The Contractor Whisperer"

  • New York School of Interior Design, Arthur Satz Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for a conversation with leading design entrepreneurs Wendy Goodman and Jean Brownhill. Wendy, the legendary design editor of New York magazine, has been like a fairy godmother to Jean, a trained architect who founded Sweeten, a free renovation matchmaking service connecting the design trade and homeowners with vetted general contractors. What did Wendy see in Jean's entrepreneurial spirit that made her an early believer? How did "The Contractor Whisperer" (as New York calls Jean) translate her personal renovation nightmare into a dream company with $1 billion projects in the pipeline? How can more women succeed in mostly male-dominated industries?

New York is an international city, the center of many powerful industries such as finance, advertising, publishing, media, art, fashion and yes, our personal favorites, interior design and architecture. Learn from how the best and boldest collaborate and succeed in New York design. What makes the work of an interior designer in New York special and New York-ish? From city permits and coop rules, how does working in the city differ from working anywhere else? New York designers require solid strategy, utter professionalism, toughness and charm.

Join Wendy Moonan as she explores the relationship between architects and interior designers in New York, using examples from her book, New York Splendor: The City’s Most Memorable Rooms.

New York Splendor: The City’s Most Memorable Rooms is available for purchase after the lecture.

This program is co-sponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA). Free admission for ICAA members.

At this talk, the project team will highlight historic places where LGBT designers have made an indelible impact on the landscape of New York City.

#GivingTuesday 2018

Help us design the future ...

Our students are the future leaders of interior design and their work will have an impact on our daily lives in countless ways. They will go on to create and care for the places that matter most to us – the places where we live, work, meet and play. In so doing, they will insure that these places are more functional, pleasant and livable.

As a non-profit organization, NYSID raises money from individuals like you to support scholarships for our talented and deserving students. For many, this makes their education possible. In all cases, having a scholarship reduces or eliminates the need for paid employment during their school years and allows our students to focus on their studies.

With the holidays almost upon us, please consider including NYSID in your gift giving plans. By making a tax-deductible contribution to our Scholarship Fund, you will be playing a vital role in designing the future by helping our students achieve their dreams of becoming design professionals. 

Be a part of #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving and donate today.

We Are What We Build Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design

  • Arthur Satz Auditorium, New York School of Interior Design (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The built environment impacts health at every scale that we design and build in. This understanding has magnified in recent years with a particular focus on interior design, material health and the transparency of products we specify. This lecture and panel discussion will highlight the opportunities for designers, owners and product manufacturers to join the transparency movement today and begin making a positive difference tomorrow. Breeze Glazer, Program Director of Healthcare Design at NYSID and Sustainable Healthcare Leader, at Perkins+Will will start the evening with a brief lecture on healthy materials, the transparency movement and the Precautionary List.

A moderated discussion will follow with panelists sharing a range of perspectives, insights and lessons learned including; 
Mary Holt, Executive VP, Creative Director of Carnegie Fabrics
Arjav Shah Interior Project Designer, Perkins+Will 
Ethan Lu Program Director of the NYSID MPS in Sustainable Interior Environments Program.

The Sally Henderson Lecture on Green Design is an annual event created to honor the memory of NYSID faculty member, Sally Henderson, who developed the College’s first course in green design.

More about the Transparency project:
Too often, some of the design profession's most impactful decisions are made in the dark, with little material information available when specifying a product. But designing healthy buildings means specifying healthier building products. For years, designers at Perkins+Will have facilitated informed decisions by working with clients and manufacturers to find alternatives that use the fewest possible toxic substances. We help our fellow design professionals do the same through Transparency. transparency.perkinswill.com

The free, universally accessible database includes the Precautionary List — a compilation of the most ubiquitous and problematic substances that people encounter every day in the built environment. It allows design professionals to search for key substances and chemicals of concern using filters like project type, product type, and health and environmental impacts.
