Robert Altman’s New York Apartment from Architectural Digest, March 1990

About ten years ago I was shooting the interiors of my film Quintet in Montreal, in the remains of Expo ’67, and there were these forty-four glass panels — photomurals — eighteen feet tall on top of the seven-story structure that was one of the theme pavilions… The thing was about to be razed, so I quickly made an arrangement with the government that I could salvage those panels. I took them down, at no small expense I must say, and shipped them to California, where I had a film studio called Lion’s Gate. I put them up in a projection room there and in the lobby. And when I sold that company in 1981, I sold the building and everything in it, except those panels — I had a great affection for them. I shipped them to New York, and I stored them in a warehouse there until I could find an apartment good enough for them and with a high enough ceiling to accommodate them.
