Writing in The New York Times's "The Appraisal" column, Matt A.V. Chaban reports on the legacy of partners Charles Gwathmey and Robert Siegel. Gwathmey, who died in 2009, and Siegel, who is retired, completed over 400 projects together in places including New York, Ohio, Indiana, and Florida. Gene Kaufman, AIA, joined the partnership in 2011, and the New York firm is today called Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman Architects. The firm recently completed a 50-story building in Jersey City, N.J., called 70 Columbus, which includes 545 apartments. Chaban writes about the project: "It is a continuation of what came before, but also a coda to the Gwathmey-Siegel legacy, one Mr. Siegel has had to maintain alone."
