Citicorp Center in NYC: A Case Study in Professional Ethics (AIA# TCECIT) (2 credit hours/2 HSW Hours)

This 2 hour course for construction professionals, architects, and engineers discusses the ethical and professional dimensions surrounding the fascinating building 601 Lexington Avenue, New York City (formerly Citicorp or Citigroup Center) completed in 1977, designed by Hugh Stubbins and William LeMessurier. This intriguing case involves the skyscraper built above a church on “stilts” while using miscalculated measurements. You will learn the details of what happened, examine core ethical issues the case raises, and see what it can teach us about professional ethics and practice.
