OHNY 2015

For architecture buffs and design lovers, Open House New York Weekend is a veritable holiday. For two days every October, the doors to some of the five boroughs’ most important buildings are unlocked, allowing guests to experience the city in a new way and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York. This year, 250 sites range from historic to contemporary and residential to industrial, and the event also includes walking tours, talks, and performances. Highlights include the 1920s gilded Loew’s Kings Theatre, Philip Johnson’s World’s Fair relic known as the New York State Pavilion, and Brooklyn Grange, the world’s largest rooftop farm.

We’ve teamed up with our friends over at OHNY to offer 6sqft readers the chance to win a Weekend Passport to the event, a unique VIP button that allows the wearer and a guest front-of-the-line access to all sites and programs that don’t require advance reservations.

Here’s how to enter:

Today is the last day to snap a picture (using your best photography skills, of course) of your favorite piece of architecture anywhere in the five boroughs. Share it with us on Instagram @openhousenewyork and @6sqft with the hashtag #sendmetoOHNY with the location. Tomorrow we’ll pick our favorite photo and send one lucky reader to OHNY in style.

Win a Juniper THIN LED task lamp from Dwell

To celebrate the launch of 6sqft we’ve teamed up with Dwell to give one lucky reader a beautiful, blazing red THIN LED Task Lamp (worth $395) from the Dwell Store.

The lamp, a collaborative design between Seattle’s Peter Bristol and Brooklyn’s Juniper Design, employs 33 dimmable LEDs in an ultra-thin, modern silhouette combined with brass details and a cast iron base for a timeless and friendly feel. The THIN lamp’s long arms are able to reach over a work surface to direct light where needed, without taking over a space; and when not on task, it can be folded into a minimal vertical profile. And don’t be misled by its demure form, the THIN is a powerhouse able to produce 500 lumens of warm white light!

Want one to call your own?

To enter, all you need to do is:

1. Sign up for the 6sqft newsletter here. We’ll announce the winner in our newsletter, so if you want to know if you’ve won, you’ll need to sign up.
