Gina Pollara currently serves as Executive Director of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park which was designed by the architect Louis I. Kahn on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in New York City. Prior to this, she served as Associate Director of the Architecture Archives of The Cooper Union and co-curated a number of exhibitions including the seminal one on FDR Park in January/February 2005. It was an article in The New York Times about this exhibition that brought the Park project to the attention of its major funder Alphawood Foundation Chicago. Ms. Pollara maintained a practice from 1993 to 2001 designing and overseeing construction of a number of City apartments and residential additions, while concurrently working as: Owner’s Representative for the reconstruction of The Manhasset, an Upper West Side apartment building gutted by a ten-alarm fire; Consultant to the Chief Executive, Division of School Facilities, New York City Board of Education; Analyst for New York City Public School District 10 in The Bronx and Consultant to United Cerebral Palsy in association with the Mayor’s Office of Developmental Disabilities. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from The Cooper Union and a Bachelor of Art degree from Bennington College.
