Archtober (ärk’tôbər), New York City’s annual Architecture and Design Month, is now in its seventh year! For 2017, the festival of architecture activities, programs, and exhibitions spans the entire month of October.
Archtober’s curated calendar features more than 150 architecture and design lectures, conferences, programs, and exhibitions happening at New York Center for Architecture and collaborating institutions across the city.
One of the festival’s most distinctive features is the breadth of its collaborating organizations, and many are returning for 2017. The diversity of these organizations captures the unique spirit of New York’s world of design and architecture.
Always a favorite, the architecture boat tours are a sought-after ticket.
