The Days of Wine and…Buildings

We had not heard of this prior to today, but we now plan on buying tickets forevermore! It’s Architectural Digest’s “Architecture Days,” a series of nearly week-long, building-based events in three cities, from early October through mid-November, this year in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, respectively. We make note of it now because apparently the tickets they do go quick. So hop to it, if you live anywhere nearby, and start stretching your neck in preparation of having to look skyward for a couple of days. Here’s some of the NY highlights:

Gramercy Park: Oct. 13, 6 to 8 p.m. Francis Marrone, an architectural historian, focuses on the transformation of the Gramercy neighborhood, which over the last 100 years has undergone countless changes while retaining its urban coherence.

Generations of Modernism: Panel discussion, Oct. 11, 6 to 8 p.m. Barry Bergdoll, newly appointed Chief Curator of Architecture and Design of MoMA, moderates a discussion of various generations’ viewpoints on the Modern Movement. Reception included.

Inside The Architect’s Studio: Oct. 10, 6 to 9 p.m. and Oct. 12, 3 to 6 p.m. Get extraordinary access to top architects’ offices.
