Edward Durell Stone

1902 - 1978

Architect Edward Durell Stone was a pioneering American Modernist who designed The Museum of Modern Art (1939) in association with Philip Goodwin. Stone later rejected the austerity of modernism and sought to create a warmer, more decorative modern architecture in projects such as the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, India (1954), the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. (1959), the Gallery of Modern Art (1958) on Columbus Circle, the General Motors Building (1967) on Fifth Avenue, and this townhouse, which he renovated in 1956, and where he lived until 1964.
