Archtober Tweet-for-Treat!

Fall is around the corner, but Monday will be a scorcher in New York City. Luckily, Archtober can help you beat the heat with free ice cream!

Join us this Monday, 08.29.16 from 1-2pm for the Archtober summer kick-off event at Samsung 837 (at 837 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District), this year’s first Building of the Day. We’ll be bidding farewell to the summer and celebrating New York City’s month-long architecture and design festival in New York City.

Free ice cream sandwiches from COOLHAUS, architecturally inspired desserts, for the first 100 people to follow us on social media.

Aging in Place

With nearly 1.4 million adults age 60 and older living in New York City, a number projected to increase by 40% to almost 2 million by 2040, the need for age-friendly residential buildings has never been greater. Architects and the building community play an increasingly important role in ensuring that the city remains a safe place to grow old.

In collaboration with the NYC Department for the Aging, the AIANY Design for Aging Committee released the Aging in Place Guide for Building Owners this past July. A 21-member advisory panel of city agencies, design professionals, nonprofit organizations, community partners, and businesses assisted with the creation of the guide. Read More

Jürgen Mayer H. Speaks on Reactivating Public Space in Times Square and Beyond

As founder and principal at J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten, Jürgen Mayer H. is an expert at building provocative structures that actively engage and often inspire the public. So it’s no surprise that he gathered quite a crowd to the Center for Architecture on 08.23.16 for a lecture in partnership with Times Square Arts, which commissioned a public lounge by Mayer that opened the following day. Pinpointing the talk’s theme, Mayer said, “There is a specific articulation that comes from a location that can be reinterpreted in new ways, making it relevant design for the public.” Read More

Oculus Book Review: FIGMENT: What Is This? Why Is Nothing for Sale? Why Is Everyone Smiling?

It seems to be a rite of passage for shoestring arts institutions to publish a book for a crucial anniversary. This book, compiled by FIGMENT founder David Koren and edited by Carlijn Urlings, is representative of the FIGMENT ethos, sometimes maddeningly so. The breezy narrative takes the reader through Koren’s sometimes insights, sometimes musings on the origins of FIGMENT, and the complexities of producing arts-based programing in and outside of the United States.  FIGMENT: What Is This? Why Is Nothing for Sale? Why Is Everyone Smiling? presents a challenge for a reviewer because much of the text is a disclaimer for the document before you; Koren tells us that “this is not the FIGMENT book, it is a FIGMENT book.” So, in that spirit, this review is about both books.
