Archtober New York City’s annual Architecture and Design Month, is now celebrating its fifth year! The festival of architecture, designer programs, and design exhibitions will take place from October 1-31, 2015 in entire New York City.
This year’s festival theme is “5 Years, 5 Boroughs.” A celebration of the impact of design, Archtober is a major draw for archi-tourists and city dwellers alike.
As always, Archtober will be stationed at the Center for Architecture on LaGuardia Place in Greenwich Village, where the Archtober Lounge awaits festival-goers with guides and program information, and a calendar designed by Pentagram. Archtober’s curated calendar will feature more than 150 architecture and design lectures, conferences, programs, and exhibitions happening at the Center for Architecture and collaborating institutions across the city.
In addition, this year Archtober will offer a satellite lounge location in Lower Manhattan. Which would be for the first time since the inception of the show.
Highlights of Archtober 2015 include the ever-popular “Building of the Day” lunchtime tours, one for each day of the month, often guided by the architects of those building themselves.
One of the festival’s distinctive features is the breadth of its collaborating organizations, and many are returning for 2015. The diversity of these organizations captures the unique spirit of New York’s design world. click here to read full article….
