Archtober 2013 places special focus on resiliency
Now in it's third year, Archtober is a month-long celebration of architectural design in New York City. Over 50 organizations are participating, and events will be held each day of the month throughout the city, including talks, tours and panels.
A "Building of the Day" series will feature a daily tour of a contemporary New York building, from the United Nations complex to the Shake Shack in Madison Square. The Architecture and Design Film Festival will run from October 16 to 20 at Tribeca Cinemas.
This year there will be special focus on resiliency, with the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy at the end of the month. At a press event yesterday, Rick Bell, Executive Director of American Institute of Architects New York, announced a series of TEDxNYIT talks that will address Meta Resiliency. The talks are to be held at the New York Institute of Technology's auditorium on Broadway.
