Heritage Ball

2016 Heritage Ball

Thursday, October 27

Chelsea Piers


On October 27, 2016, architects and industry professionals will come together for the Heritage Ball, the annual black tie event to support the Center for Architecture. 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 Center for Architecture and allows it to fulfill its mission to educate the public about the value of architecture and design, alongside its partner, the AIA New York Chapter.

The gala 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.


 AIA New York and the Center for Architecture request the pleasure of your company at the 2016 Heritage Ball.
