Field Condition Names Winners in Debut #ArchtoberSelects Instagram Challenge

This year, Archtober partnered with the Four Freedoms Park Alliance to host a special Archtober Summer Kickoff event on 07.12.17. FDR Four Freedoms Park in Roosevelt Island, a four-acre memorial to FDR that celebrates the Four Freedoms he articulated in his 1941 State of the Union, offers a stunning view of Manhattanhenge, the day when the sun sets perfectly in line with the city’s street grid. This year, a dramatic sky substituted for the sun to make the event a great success, drawing 1,000 guests despite the threat of thunder and rain.

In Memoriam: Hilary Ballon (1956-2017)

AIA New York and the Center for Architecture mourn the loss of Hilary Ballon, Professor of Urban Studies and Architecture at NYU and Deputy Vice Chancellor of NYU Abu Dhabi on 06.16.17. A celebrated architectural historian, Ballon’s work focused on cities and the intersection of architecture, politics, and social life. Her work on New York City included research on Manhattan’s 1811 street grid, the transformative projects of Robert Moses, and New York’s Pennsylvania Station. Below are words of remembrance from just a few of those who were touched by Hilary’s intellect and compassion. Please share your own reflections in our comment section below. Read More
