2016 Oculus Editorial Calendar
If you are an architect in practice or by training, or see yourself as an astute observer of New York’s architectural and planning scene, Oculus wants to hear from you! You may submit projects/topics from anywhere, but architects must be New York-based. Please submit story ideas/projects by the deadlines indicated below to Kristen Richards, Hon. AIA, Hon. ASLA:

Fall: Tech in the City
Why cutting-edge industry loves older buildings. How technology businesses transform neighborhoods and the city at large. Adaptive Reuse & Interiors.
Deadline for story ideas: 05.16.16

Winter: Preservation & Reinvention / Rethinking Preservation / Preservation & Urbanism / Preservation Today
Projects with a unique take on history and how to reconcile it with contemporary needs. Focus on daylight and natural ventilation as city becomes more dense; historic preservation as zoning tool; quality vs. scale. Is city preserving too much in historic districts?
