Boulevardier Andrew P. MacNair lives and works in New York City since 1971 when he came to the city from Washington and Princeton to study architecture in the graduate school at Columbia University. He studied with Richard Saul Wurman, Anthony Vidler, Michael Graves, Kenneth Frampton and did his master thesis on the reconstruction of the Central Park Zoo from a 19th century menagerie into a modern zoological garden. He has shown drawings, paintings, and models in many group and solo exhibitions including exhibitions in New York, Amsterdam, Den Haag, Ghent, Stuttgart and recently at the Architecture for Art Gallery in Hillsdale, NY. He publishes and edits for 10 years an art and architecture magazine called Zapp Urbanism which is part the work of his Manhattan Studio. MacNair also currently is an editor with Steven Holl and Michael Bell of another little magazine between China and the US called 32BNY also for 10 years – both magazines were founded in response to the 911 attacks on the city.
