Still haven’t found the perfect gift for your favorite architect? AIA New York has a few recommendations for you!
For Design-Savvy Mixologists: Cocktails and Conversations: Dialogues on Architectural Design
For six years, the AIANY Architecture Dialogue Committee’s “Cocktails and Conversations” series has paired some of the most provocative practitioners with journalists, curators, historians, and critics. To lubricate the discussion, master mixologists invented cocktails in the spirit of each designer’s work. The recipes, and snippets from the series, are included in this book. Try the Clair Pool, a martini riff invoking Claire Weisz’s post-Sandy Rockaway Boardwalk, or the Adjmi Sazerac, inspired by the architect’s Cajun upbringing.
For Sightseers and History Buffs: Architectural Boat Tours
Step aboard a 1920s-style schooner and experience New York City from the water’s edge. Expert guides provide lively narration covering architecture and engineering landmarks from all eras of the city’s history, as well as current urban planning and environmental issues impacting urban waterfronts. Choose from five distinct tours, all hosted by members of AIA New York.
For the Architects of the Future: K-12 Architecture Experiences
Got a junior architect at home? The Center for Architecture offers a variety of educational experiences for children of all ages, from Saturday family activities for children 5-13, to Winter Vacation programs and after-school digital design studios.
