101 Spring Street Restoration Receives Award! Judd Foundation is proud to announce that our 101 Spring Street restoration project has been awarded a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award from The New York Landmarks Conservancy. The Moses Awards are the Conservancy’s highest honors for outstanding preservation work and are given to projects that demonstrate excellence in the restoration, preservation, or adaptive use of historic buildings, streetscapes, and landscapes that preserve commercial, residential, institutional, religious, and public buildings in New York. Led by board members Rob Beyer and Flavin Judd, the restoration project utilized the talents of architects Adam Yarinsky and Jeff Hong of ARO, and Robert Bates of Walter B. Melvin Architects. After several years of preparation, the restoration began on June 3, 2010 and lasted three years. The project was one of the most comprehensive restorations of a cast iron building in New York's history. 101 Spring Street was converted to a living and working space over a duration of twenty five years by Donald Judd and houses his work and the work of artists he collected: Jean Arp, Carl Andre, Larry Bell, John Chamberlain, Stuart Davis, Marcel Duchamp, Dan Flavin, David Novros, Claes Oldenburg, Ad Reinhardt, Lucas Samaras, Kurt Schwitters and Frank Stella, and furniture by Alvar Aalto, Michael Thonet, and Gerrit Rietveld, among others.
