Archtober is back in New York City, complete with a bevvy of architect-led tours, talks, and events as well as online components
By Matt Hickman
After being retooled and reimagined last year to offer both virtual programming and in-person outdoor tours (with an emphasis on the former), Archtober is once again embracing a hybrid format for its forthcoming 11th edition. However, much has changed over the past 12 months, and, in turn, the month-long celebration of architecture and design organized by the Center for Architecture will ease back a bit more into traditional in-person activities—exhibitions, talks, guided explorations, and much more—across New York City and beyond. But, as was discovered last year, complementing festival-anchoring in-person events with a robust lineup of virtual goings-on has enabled Archtober to expand its reach beyond the five boroughs while reaching new and diverse audiences.
This year, the Center for Architecture, which will reopen its own physical galleries and public spaces at its Greenwich Village home on October 1 to coincide with the launch of Archtober, is collaborating with over 70 partnering organizations and sponsors for the 2021 city-wide event including the Van Alen Institute, Open House New York, the Urban Design Forum, the Brooklyn Public Library, the Judd Foundation, the Pratt Institute, New York Botanical Garden, the Architectural League of New York, the Museum of Modern Art, and Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, and more.
