Day 37: Center for Architecture

In Greenwich Village, NYC Architecture, NYC for free, NYC Museums, things to do in NYC on July 7, 2009 at 9:40 pm


As it describes itself, the Center for Architecture is a place where anyone with an interest in ‘the built environment’ can come to ‘gather, share, learn, honor and advocate.” Located on LaGuardia Place, in the heart of Greenwich Village, the Center is open to industry professionals along with the general public as well, with exhibitions on view daily and scheduled events including tours, lectures, and film screenings. Though the Center’s programs and exhibitions cover topics in many areas of the industry, there is a focus on New York architecture, with a goal of helping visitors develop a greater appreciation for the city around us. Currently on view, until September 14—A Space Within: The National September 11 Memorial and Museum, scheduled for partial completion in 2011.

  1. My girl tells me she wants to be an architect when she grows up – I think she loves Lego so much so hope she won’t be upset when she learns that you can’t make a real building out of the stuff! (Or perhaps she’ll be the first!). Love this blog for my daily dose of NY so have left an award mention for you at mine – feel free to blow your own trumpet as much as you like!

  2. Yay! thanks so much.
    Sounds like you’ve got a smart little cookie there! I say she shall indeed be the first.
