NYU & Washington Square: Changing Strategies of Growth and Design


When: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM SUNDAY, AUGUST 30

Where: AIANY Tours   

Meet at Washington Square Arch, Fifth Ave. & Washington Square North

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.

Organized by: AIANY Architecture Tour Committee
