In its inaugural year, Archtober, is a month long festival focused on architecture exhibitions and activities in New York City. After holding eight years of successful architecture weeks typically held in October, that included openhousenewyork (OHNY), and exhibition at the Center for Architecture, AIA NY’s Heritage Ball, and last year Architecture & Design Film Festival’s first NYC event, New York City has created a month long celebration of exciting events for the general public, visitors and architecture aficionados to enjoy.
Among the numerous events each day in October will feature a new building or public space highlighting a Building of the Day. Entrance to the Center for Architecture Archtober lounge and exhibitions is free and open to the public. Head to Archtober’s webpage to download a full guide and for entrance fees to some of the other events.
Archtober – New York City Architecture and Design Month originally appeared on ArchDaily, the most visited architecture website on 04 Oct 2011.
