Fifth Avenue’s Glorious French Mansions During the Gilded Age


Gary Lawrance,
Lawrance Architectural Presentations

AIA Course ID 359PAV

2:00 pm – 3:50 pm

During the Gilded Age, an opportunity arose where a group of skilled architects could build for America’s newly rich (Astor, Vanderbilt, Whitney, etc.). This unique clientele wanted mansions that recalled the glories of French architecture with ornate chateaus replete with interiors worthy of the originals. These homes had libraries, art galleries and ballrooms that could accommodate over 100 guests.

France served as a cultural beacon, as well – affecting the lifestyles of these structures. Amongst the palms, Rembrandts, crystal, gold, and ancient velvets, the guests had lavish – European-style galas.

The differences between this Gilded Age and today are striking. The foibles of these fabulous clients and how they interacted with their beautiful designs are shared with the audience.
