Wallace K. Harrison
|Located between west 62nd to west 66th Streets and Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is comprised of a unity of several buildings--all of travertine--devoted to the performance of music, theater, opera, and dance. The overall project was directed by Wallace K. Harrison and completed between 1962 and 1968. The buildings surround an open, user-friendly plaza, even though the buildings are generally conservative in style.|
|The focal point of this complex, the Metropolitan Opera House, is located on the west side of Lincoln Center. It is also the largest of the buildings. The lobby has beautiful paintings by Marc Chagall as well as overwhelming chandeliers of Austrian crystal.|
