OHNY Weekend App, openhousenewyork, dsgnfix

As if we weren’t looking forward to openhousenewyork Weekend enough, a new app to help guide and organize tour goers has us even more excited.

Created through a partnership with dsgnfix, the free, location-based iPhone app “enables users to search, discover, and share design destinations and experiences.” During OHNY weekend (October 11-12) those with the app downloaded will be able to scroll through all of the 150 free Open Access sites, organized by the user’s real-time location.

You can probably guess that we’re pretty excited about the 12th annual openhousenewyork weekend, taking place this year on October 11th and 12th, so of course we couldn’t wait to share the just-announced guide to the spaces on this year’s roster.

Tour goers will have access to 300 sites and tours in all five boroughs, including private residences, new buildings, and sites of architectural, cultural, and historical significance. Some of the sites we’re most looking forward to touring are the TWA Flight Center at JFK, Kickstarter headquarters, the Manhattan Micro Loft, and El Barrio’s Artspace PS109.
