Archtober (pronounced like the “arch” in architecture) is New York City’s annual Architecture and Design month in October that celebrates the city’s interesting infrastructure and its civic and international impact. Through various exhibitions, tours, activities and programs, this month-long event organized by the New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), it seeks to educate the public about architecture and design in everyday life.
It is put together through the collaborative efforts of some of New York City’s leading cultural institutions and professional organizations. Here are 11 exciting events not to miss during the month-long event.
