AIA New York is excited to host the A’18 Conference on Architecture!

In 1857, thirteen architects met in New York to form an organization to promote architects and architecture. The AIA was born. Ten years later, the AIA held its first annual convention in New York, where it was repeated for another ten years before moving on to other cities. The last time the conference took place in New York was 30 years ago. Don’t miss the event’s return to its birthplace! AIA New York and the Center for Architecture planned dozens of tours and events that will bring you to every borough—by boat, bike, bus, subway, and on foot. Check the conference web site for details.

We’ve developed this City Guide to help you gear up even more for A’18 and plan your week of activities that coincide with conference. Here you’ll find a list of 28 Open Studios you can visit at leading architecture firms across the city from Tuesday, June 19 through Friday, June 21. We’ve also included some great events around town we think you might like. Many require an RSVP to attend so be sure to secure your spot ahead of time.

What better way to experience NYC than guided by local architects? See you in New York!
