Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

Conversations on the City | Vishaan Chakrabarti: On Opportunity

03 August 7:00pm
Organized by: Open House New York
Venue: LMHQ
150 Broadway
New York

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 August 3, join OHNY and Vishaan Chakrabarti for a conversation about opportunity. Vishaan Chakrabarti is the Founder of Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU). Simultaneously, Vishaan is an Associate Professor of Practice at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation (GSAPP), where he teaches architectural design studios and seminars on urbanism. His highly acclaimed book, A Country of Cities: A Manifesto for an Urban America (Metropolis Books, 2013), argues that a more urban United States would result in a more prosperous, sustainable, joyous, and socially mobile nation. He has been a guest on the Charlie Rose show, MSNBC’s The Cycle, NY1, NPR, WNYC, and has been profiled in the New York Times and the Financial Times.



Admission is free but reservations are required as space is limited. Registration will begin on July 20 at 10 am.


Each talk will last approximately one hour, and will be followed by a reception.
