This year marks the 10th anniversary of Archtober, New York City’s month-long celebration of architecture and design. Every year Archtober brings together a diverse range of architecture and design-related organizations to host a wide variety of events, from walking tours and panel discussions, to book talks and exhibitions, every day during the month of October. As with most things happening in 2020, this year’s Archtober festival is a little different. In addition to a selection of in-person experiences, there will also be a variety of workshops, tours and talks conducted virtually, including Archtober’s signature Building of the Day tours. Untapped New York is a proud media sponsor of Archtober and will be hosting an experience almost every day throughout the month!
