Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Join Matt Postal for a walk through Morningside Heights, often called the "acropolis of New York City." En route, we'll visit various prestigious institutions to consider their recent contributions to the cityscape, including a controversial new apartment building on the grounds of St. John the Divine, the Diana Center at Barnard College, and the Northwest Corner Science building at Columbia University, by Jose Rafael Moreno of Spain. The tour concludes in Manhattan Valley, in the shadow of the IRT viaduct, at the Lenfest Center for the Arts, part of Columbia's emerging Manhattanville campus, Renzo Piano's latest and perhaps most ambitious project in New York City. Cost: $30 / $20 Members
