Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Join instructor Zoltan Kovacs at Covax Atelier in Clifton, New Jersey for a glimpse into the work and craft of the blacksmith. This course will begin with an abridged screening of the documentary Devil’s Blacksmith, which highlights the well-known yet never perfected efforts to reconstruct the wrought-iron band hinges of Notre Dame, Paris. Following the film, there will be a presentation on the design and fabrication processes of the Yale New Residential Colleges. This presentation will demonstrate the ancient blacksmith techniques seen in the movie both on a smaller scale and applied on a larger scale. A hands-on demonstration will follow, allowing participants to forge their own piece of metal.
