Urban historians A.K. Sandoval-Strausz and Andrew Dolkart examine two lesser-studied types of tall buildings by use: hotels and lofts. Drawing on their detailed studies of these distinctive development types – Sandoval-Strausz in his book Hotel: An American History, and Dolkart in his study of skyscraper lofts in New York’s Garment District – their talks will analyze the design and function of these characteristically urban commercial high-rises and how they relate to the social and economic construction of the industries and populations they accommodate.
