All the Queens Houses: the highly idiosyncratic housing styles of Queens

November 17, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

The highly idiosyncratic housing styles of Queens!

The borough of Queens has long been celebrated as the melting pot of America. Over a million foreign-born residents call it home, yet its houses are relatively unknown.  This first comprehensive publication features over two-hundred images of highly idiosyncratic residential structures that characterize the global building aesthetic of Queens.

Between 2013 and 2020, Spanish-born architect and artist Rafael Herrin-Ferri made these buildings the subject of a seven-year block-by-block photo survey project.

Frontal, New Objective-style house portraits are accompanied by interpretive texts revealing a colorful history of alterations and architectural references, while full-page detail shots and street perspectives reflect the “World’s Borough” from a personal and pedestrian point of view.

Hosted by: Steve Vazquez, founder of Queenscapes – Trustee Astoria Historical Society
