Sotheby’s New York will host two highly-anticipated design auctions this week. “The Jon Stryker Collection: Masterworks of European Modernism,” will take place on Tuesday, December 16, followed by the “Important 20th Century Design” sale on Wednesday, December 17.

“Masterworks of European Modernism” will feature works from the collection of Jon Stryker -- an American architect, philanthropist, and activist. In 2002, Stryker teamed up with Peter Shelton and Lee Mindel of the New York-based architecture and interior design firm Shelton, Mindel & Associates to renovate his former apartment at the “Prasada,” a Beaux-Arts luxury apartment building overlooking Central Park in Manhattan. With help from Shelton and Mindel, Stryker created a stylish and modern space within the historic building to showcase his collection of European and Scandinavian twentieth-century design and photography.

London’s Battersea Power Station, a decommissioned coal-fired power station and celebrated landmark, is in the midst of a major redevelopment. The structure, which is the largest brick building in Europe, has remained largely unused since it stopped generating electricity in 1983. Thanks to funding from Malaysian developers, the Battersea Power Station is being reimagined and will eventually include high-end retail spaces, chic restaurants, offices, a hotel, and luxury apartments.

Wilkinson Eyre Architects, one of the UK’s leading architecture firms, has been commissioned to transform the main building, which still holds some of its original Art Deco interior fittings and decor. The Battersea Power Station Development Company, which is overseeing the project, has selected Norman Foster and Frank Gehry, both celebrated architects and designers, to design a portion of the Station's residences.
