Philip Johnson’s New York State Pavilion will get a $14.25M renovation

The iconic NY State Pavilion in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is set to undergo a $14.25M renovation funded by [NYC]. Repairs will begin next spring, which will include some structural conservation work and electrical and architectural improvements. The pavilion, which was originally designed for the 1964 World’s Fair by Philip Johnson and Lev Zetlin, has been ignored for the past few decades, largely in part because of the city’s failure to find the money for repairs.

A new era for an architectural icon is just over the horizon.
