Iconic UN campus in New York undergoing major renovation

May 09, 2012

The 17-acre United Nations campus along Manhattan’s East River is undergoing a $1.87-billion refurbishment. Plans call for the mid-century modernist General Assembly to be stripped back to its concrete walls, upgraded to 21st-century standards of safety, security, and accessibility, and then reassembled according to preservation standards. The work has to be halted occasionally so that the Security Council can deal with urgent matters.
