Posted by New York Mag on Wednesday, April 01, 2019 03:10:10New York Magazine is taking a fresh look at the history of antioch, a Brooklyn landmark that was once the headquarters of the United States Navy during the Civil War.
Antioch’s history spans more than 60 years, from the Civil Wars, to World War II, and the 1960s to today.
The building, built in 1882, was designed by the late Frederick Law Olmsted, a master of modernist architecture, and designed by a team led by architect John D. Sutter, who also designed the Statue of Liberty.
In its final decades, Antioch hosted many famous events, including the premiere of the film A Confederacy of Dunces in 1960, the debut of the television series The Andy Griffith Show, the Academy Awards in 1968, and a performance by David Lee Roth.
The city’s architectural heritage, and its connection to America’s military, is now threatened by climate change, and by the possibility of more natural disasters.
In the coming decades, there will be more storms and more tornadoes, making it harder for buildings to withstand the extremes of nature.
A Confederacy of Dots, for instance, has already torn down buildings in Antioch.
“In the coming years, you’re going to see a lot more of these storms that we’re already seeing,” says Paul Soderberg, who designed Antioch from 2002 to 2007.
“We’re going toward a situation where we’ll have to build more and more tall buildings, or we’re going into a situation of building buildings that are very vulnerable to destruction.
If we don’t do something to protect the building that’s going to be the last thing that happens.”
The city has spent $5.7 million over the past two years to protect Antioch, which sits in a floodplain and is under threat of becoming a coastal town.
The new design will cost Antioch $2.3 million.
The city is working with an architectural firm to prepare for the building’s demise.
“Antioch has a rich history and a strong heritage and I think we’ve come to realize we need to protect that heritage, that we need the preservation of that heritage,” says John D Sutter.
The building has hosted events for generations, from concerts to the opening of theaters.
“It’s a place where we were able to create and hold cultural events,” says D.M. Stoddard, who was a principal architect of the original Antioch and is now the city’s chief preservation officer.
“I’m a big fan of the city.
It’s an icon.
The preservation of Antioch is the responsibility of the City Planning Department, which is currently working with the architect to protect it. “
But I’m also a big supporter of people who want to do something more,” he adds.

The project has received support from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the New York State Historic Preservation Trust, and various foundations.
The New York Post is running an editorial on Antioch today, which features a photo of the building.
Antonios architect has worked on a number of high-profile projects, including one of the tallest buildings in the world, the Empire State Building, and has been honored for his work on the National Mall.
He’s also been awarded the National Medal of Arts for his design for the New Jersey Statehouse, which was designed with a $4 million federal grant.
But Antioch’s most recent project is the largest in the city, with a projected cost of $14.7 billion, and it will take a toll on the environment.
“If we continue to move forward with the development of the new [Antioch] site, the building will likely be a major environmental impact for the city,” says Daniel Bocanegra, a senior policy adviser with the Environmental Integrity Project.
“If we want to make sure we’re not building buildings like Antioch that are going to cause an environmental impact, then we need a more thoughtful approach to the building design.”
New York City has spent more than $10 billion to preserve its urban cores.
Antioch has the potential to be a big part of the future of the borough, but it’s a delicate process.
“When you’ve got this building that has such a rich, history, and history is going to take a tremendous amount of energy to preserve,” says Soderheim.
“You have to be mindful of the environment and the people who are going live in this area.”
Antioch is just one of several buildings that could face an uncertain future, according to a recent report by the Environmental Impact Research Center (EIRC).
That report identified several sites that could be affected by climate changes and earthquakes, as well as other natural disasters, like hurricanes.
