Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
A wave of new development is dramatically reshaping Downtown Brooklyn. On June 23, Open House New York will open more than a dozen buildings and sites to give you a chance to explore the dynamic change now underway in the neighborhood.
A hyper-local version of OHNY Weekend, Making Place: Downtown Brooklyn will kick-off with a panel discussion about the past and future of the neighborhood, followed by open houses and tours at a mix of sites that will include residential, commercial, and cultural spaces, as well as design studios and offices. The day will end with a closing reception and happy hour.
Panel Discussion: 10:30 am
Open Houses and Tours: 12-4 pm
Happy Hour Reception: 4-6 pm
