Radio City Music Hall

Location: New York, New York
Year Built: 1932
Original Architect: Edward Durrell Stone

Designed by Edward Durrell Stone with interiors by Donald Desky, the Music Hall was completed in 1932 and was the largest theater at the time of its completion. The exterior of the music hall and its public interior spaces, as well as some furnishings, are designated New York City and National Historic landmarks.

As historic preservation consultant, BCA performed archival research, documented and catalogued building elements and noted their condition. BCA conducted on-site investigation and laboratory analysis of all interior materials and finishes. Restoration specifications for construction documents were written, and BCA monitored the construction of the historic spaces.
