The Diana Center at Barnard College, New York, USA
Frederick A. P. Barnard, one of the pioneers of gender equality, fought for equal opportunities for women in education at the end of the nineteenth century. The founders named this prestigious college in Manhattan after him. Today, the modern Diana Center is the hub of cultural life on the campus. This is where female students develop their talents in art, performance and architecture. In the lobby, a design classic from the 1950s proves that some things always remain special: the Vostra armchair is an expression of modernity and to this day stands for unconventional lifestyle – forever young.
