You’ve admired their buildings, now go inside their homes. On October 1st, the Architecture and Design Film Festival will host the U.S. premiere of “Where Architects Live,” a fascinating documentary that offers an intimate look into private interiors—and the daily lives—of eight of the world’s most important architects, including Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Marcio Kogan, Daniel Libeskind and Bijoy Jain.

For two weeks out of the year during Fashion Week, everyday New Yorkers—or at least some of them—get inspired to freshen up their look, whether it’s to get into the spirit of the week or just to temper the feeling of inadequacy that results from being around too many professionally good-looking people. But no here’s your chance to shine (almost) just as bright as those models and magazine editors. Through the end of Fashion Week (which rounds out on Wednesday the 15th), if you upload a pic of your naturally stylin’ self on Instagram and tag #linkrunway, you could be featured on LinkNYC’s 650-plus digital display screens across Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx.

The art world is back in full swing this week. Head to Chelsea this Thursday and meander around the countless openings (and enjoy the cheap, swill chardonnay). Be sure to stop by Joseph Gross Gallery for their opener with Jesse Draxler and Chad Wys. Takashi Murakami’s protege opens a show of her gorgeous embroidery, and performance artist Jill Sigman explores the world of plants and weeds through dance. A group of artists pay tribute to 9/11 with an immersive exhibition called Loft in the Red Zone, and downtown artists and performer Kembra Pfahler joins Howl for their Writer’s Block series. Central Park is getting a brand new giant sculpture inspired by a shopping list thanks to the Public Art Fund, and Bloomingdale’s semi-secret train car restaurant stays open for a special chef’s tasting dinner. Speaking of food, sample all that Greenwich Village has to offer at Washington Square Park’s Taste of the Village event. Finally, gather some patience and wait in the long lines to experience Refinery29’s epic 29Rooms, which transforms 80,000 square feet of warehouse space into 29 experiential art installations.

Summer is winding down, but we’re not ready to move back indoors. Jump a ferry and celebrate the season’s end on Governors Island with an old fashioned oyster shuck. Get down (silently) outside at the Coney Island Art walls at the Quiet Clubbing Festival, or join artist Santhori in making a giant mural at the park on East 1st Street. Stretch out and appreciate Times Square on Jurgen Mayer H’s XXX easy chairs, then head to the Bowery Wall to find your friends in Logan Hicks’ giant new mural. Finally, the gallery prince of darkness JJ Brine is bringing his Vector Gallery back to New York, and two artists are turning Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery into a giant loom installation.
