Virtual Talk: United Nations Architecture Tour


United Nations interiorUnited Nations interior

This United Nations Architecture Talk, led by one of Visit UN's multilingual Tour Guides, takes an insider’s look at the UN Headquarters’ architectural elements and at the International Style that was born with the United Nations, creating a structure that was meant to be efficient, undecorated and neutral in color. Through compelling vintage photography and architectural designs, the tour guide explains how the UN Headquarters became one of the most remarkable buildings in New York City, designed by some of the most renowned architects in modern history.

Virtual attendees will be able to connect the vision and purpose of the United Nations to its architectural appearance, represented in the conference chambers - elements, design and overall look. Built on “special status diplomatic territory”, the UN building stand out as a symbol of the monumental time in history when nations came together to create a structure that would be home to the people of all nations, cultures and traditions.

This talk is part of a year-long celebration of the United Nations' 75th Anniversary, a partnership between Untapped New York and UN75. The core of the initiative is a short, one-minute survey focusing on the key priorities for international cooperation, where results from the survey will be presented to world leaders and governments this September.
