Co-curated with Thomas Mellins

This online exhibition celebrated the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s 50th anniversary. It comprised a specially commissioned film offering an overview of the Conservancy’s achievements; an illustrated timeline exploring New York City in the 1970s when the Conservancy was founded; and, bringing together texts and images, an interactive compendium of 50 of the organization’s most significant successes in preserving and protecting the architecture that helps make New York unique. A city-wide festival of lectures, concerts, and other events accompanied the online exhibition.

Mr. Albrecht worked with co-curator Thomas Mellins to conceive the exhibition’s structure and themes, select historic images, write text, collaborate with the web design team, and plan events.
