Jack Dunbar presents several examples from his twenty-year design career. Interiors of Union Carbide Building (270 Park Avenue); panel track for window coverings. Bassett Hospital (Cooperstown, New York). Dunbar country home renovation (Pennsylvania). Use of ¼“ model, freehand drawings for client presentation for a Bank renovation (Park Avenue, not built). American Public Insurance Building. Dunbar responds to questions about lack of humanity (corporate indifference) in his design; how workers have inhabited his open plan (complaints of sound pollution); working directly with manufacturers (carpet, wall coverings); gaining respect as an interior designer.
