is New York’s Architecture and Design Month, a festival of architectural design activities, programs and exhibitions taking place during the month of October. See Calendar.
Archtober presents special tours, lectures, films and exhibitions that focus on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. The many participating organizations aim to raise awareness of the important role of design in our city and to build a lasting civic and international recognition of the richness of New York’s built environment. Special programming every day of the month and access to sites, and their architects, will bring new audiences to all of the participating organizations — all of whom are committed to New York and promoting design excellence.
