Imagining the new New York City, from Penn Station to Midtown East, smart grids, public housing and the post-Sandy waterfront.
And more — watch live online, or come join the fun. Today and tomorrow (Oct 17 + 18th), at Lincoln Center.
This weekend ! It’s Open House New York, an annual “open house” showcasing distinctive examples of architecture, engineering and design around the city. From private residences and historic landmarks, to hard hat tours and sustainable skyscrapers, OHNY gives you rare access into the extraordinary architecture that defines New York City, while introducing you to the people who make the city a vibrant and sustainable place to live, work, and play. Part of a worldwide celebration, Open House New York educates and inspires discussion of issues of excellence in design, planning and preservation, and showcases outstanding new work as well as structures of historic merit.
Designers from coast to coast are breaking through the old distinction between “grey” (aka “hard” ) and “green” (aka “soft”) infrastructure to establish strategies that apply a mix of the two.
