By Michelle Cohen, Wed, September 13, 2017

If you love architecture and urban design from historic to contemporary, there has never been a better time to join Open House New York for a rare weekend of access to typically off limits sites. Celebrating its 15th anniversary, this year’s OHNY will take place on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15, opening up more than 200 buildings and projects across the five boroughs for tours and talks with architects, urban planners, preservationists, and city leaders. OHNY has just released a sneak preview of the program, which includes a tour of  SHoP Architects’ American Copper Buildings and their iconic skybridge, a peek inside the artifacts and archival gems at the New York Transit Museum Archives, the Bridge at Cornell Tech at the university’s new Roosevelt Island Campus, and the new global headquarters of West Elm.

Here’s a sneak peek at the more than 250 sites that have made it onto 2016’s highly anticipated Open House New York Weekend (OHNY), a two-day festival where usually off limits buildings across the city’s five boroughs open their doors to the public for tours, talks, and exploration. Now in its 14th year, OHNY has brought back a number of beloved locales to their roster, including the NY State Pavilion, the Brooklyn Army Terminal, City Hall and Google; they’ve also rounded up a number of brand-new spaces like the Metropolitan Opera House and the West Village’s Westbeth Artists House. The full list won’t be released for another few weeks, but we’ve got some of the highlights ahead.

This weekend is the end-all be-all for architecture mavens in New York—the annual Open House New York weekend! SO many amazing architectural icons are open and waiting for you to explore them, before they close their doors to the general public for another year. The weekend also brings a not-to-miss exhibition, “Calm Before the Storm,” with new works by Logan Hicks and Beau Stanton. Yes, this is curated by yours truly and Natalie Kates, and it’s guaranteed to be an epic marine-themed show, complete with a giant shipwreck in the gallery.

The intelligent concept store Chamber NYC has its second collection in play with earth-inspired art and design objects curated by Andrew Zuckerman. The Lowline, that underground park we hope comes to fruition, is hosting an open house to check out the techie gadgets they’re working on to make it a reality. Detroit print mavens 1xRun are taking over Joseph Gross Gallery, and Greenpoint Gallery is letting the people decide. FIT is hosting a two-day symposium on everything Susanne Bartsch, and lastly, Ad Hoc Gallery will be resurrected for the 6th annual Welling Court Mural Fest.
