Heritage Ball

On October 23, 2014, architects and industry professionals will come together for the Heritage Ball, the annual black tie event to support the AIA New York Chapter and the Center for Architecture Foundation. Heritage Ball began in the 1980s and has grown from a small party to an over 1,100 person gala.

The Heritage Ball serves as the single largest funding source for the AIA New York Chapter and Center for Architecture Foundation and allows them to carry out their many initiatives. It is an exciting event held to honor the rich architectural heritage of New York City, and to celebrate the architects, officials, organizations, and professionals from related industries that continue the city's tradition of design excellence.

Party@theCenter is the official Heritage Ball after-party that packs the Center for Architecture until late into the night. All Heritage Ball attendees are given complimentary admission. Advance and at-door ticketing is available for those attending the after-party only.
