Edward Durell Stone (1902–1978)

Edward Durell Stone began his architectural design career inspired by the International Style, eventually leaning into less austere designs as his career progressed [1]. His work as the architect for the Art Deco Radio City Music Hall building shows his less conservative side.

Stone orchestrated many buildings of note across America, often working with fellow architect Philip L. Goodwin. His widely acclaimed architectural design for the U.S. embassy in New Delhi further enhanced Stone’s exposure internationally.

Radio City Music Hall is just one of several iconic buildings in Edward Durell Stone’s prolific New York City portfolio. You may recognize his work as the office buildings and places of culture throughout the city: 1 Financial Square, 2 Columbus Circle (currently houses the Museum of Arts and Design), the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Edward Durell Stone House are his.
