Welcome to the website of the AIA New York Chapter and the Center for Architecture!

Center Under Construction

The Center for Architecture will be renovating from July 1 through September 1. During this time, no exhibitions will be on view, but the space will mainly remain open for programming and events.

The Center for Architecture will close completely from Monday, July 13 to Saturday, July 18 while we replace the floors.

Our first exhibition following the renovations will be Un/fair Use, opening September 10, which will explore issues of copying and copyright in architecture.
