Transforming the Y

Published November 04, 2009.

Since taking over as executive director in 2007, Stephen Hazan Arnoff has looked to transform the 14th Street Y of the Educational Alliance both conceptually and physically. The first phase of the building renovation reflects the Y’s attempt to use art and design to enhance a sense of community. In this audio slideshow, Esther Sperber from Studio ST Architects discusses the challenges she and her colleague, Guy Zucker of Z-A Studio faced as Jewish architects renovating a Jewish communal space while preserving and enhancing its inclusive mission.
