FDR Four Freedoms State Park is the last great work of renowned architect Louis Kahn. You can celebrate Kahn’s legacy with the Four Freedoms Park Conservancy this October as part of a special tour and happy hour for Archtober. Archtober is a month long series of events that explores architecture and design in New York City. The tour of the presidential memorial will be led by Robert Balder, the Executive Director of Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, and Stephen Martin, the Conservancy’s former Director of Design and Planning. Balder and Martin will detail the design philosophy of America’s preeminent modernist architect and the changing landscape of Roosevelt Island and New York City. An informal happy hour reception with wine, beer, and snacks will follow the tour for an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow architecture and design enthusiasts.
