When: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM SUNDAY, APRIL 9

Where: AIANY Tours

Spanning more than a century, New York University’s growth around Washington Square has followed a variety of strategies: repurposing of existing industrial buildings, incremental contextually-designed new structures, and large-scale clearance and redevelopment through urban renewal—the superblocks of which are now viewed as sites for further development. Learn about and view examples of this growth, including notable designs by I. M. Pei, Philip Johnson, Kevin Roche, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Machado & Silvetti, Steven Holl, and Morris Adjmi.

Tours will run rain or shine. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour start time. Registration is limited to 15; walk-ups are not guaranteed a spot on the tour. Some tours utulizie VOX amplification systems, and so attendees are welcome to bring their personal earbuds.
