Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
When we think of Open House New York, we rightfully think about buildings and the thrill of getting access to the otherwise inaccessible. But this summer, in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Open House New York Weekend, we invite you to join us as we explore some of the deeper values and ideas that make the experience of architecture and cities so powerful, values and ideas that Open House New York itself champions in its programs.
On July 27, join OHNY and Alexandra Horowitz for a conversation about observation. Alexandra Horowitz is the author of the New York Times bestseller Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know (2009), On Looking: A Walker’s Guide to the Art of Observation (2013), and Being a Dog: Following the Dog into a World of Smell (2016). She is an adjunct Associate Professor at Barnard College, Columbia University, where she teaches seminars in creative non-fiction and canine cognition, and performs research at the Dog Cognition Lab. She lives and walks in New York City with her husband, young son, and two large, sniffy dogs.
Admission is free but reservations are required as space is limited. Registration will begin on July 13 at 10 am.
Each talk will last approximately one hour, and will be followed by a reception.
