Lower East Side Walking Tour featuring the Switch Building

Monday, October 17, 2011

1:00-2:30pm, $20

The 2009 AIA Merit Award Switch Building by nArchitects was the first in a wave of outstanding architect designed residential buildings built on the Lower East Side. In the immediate vicinity, 115 Norfolk St by Grzywinski+Pons and Bernard Tschumi’s big Blue glass building makes Norfolk street an innovative design hub of lower Manhattan. But the Lower East Side from the creation of the ubiquitous brick walk tenement building to union financed co-operative blocks on Grand Street and Robert Moses era public housing has long been a place of housing experimentation. This tour will locate these new housing prototypes in the long tradition of experimental housing in the area and meet the architects of the Switch Building nArchitects.

The Standard New York Tour

Friday, October 28, 2011

4pm-6pm, $20

The eighteen-story, concrete and glass structure defines the identity of the Standard Hotel and engages its urban context through contrast. The building straddles the High Line, an abandoned section of a 75-year-old elevated railroad line, which passes over the Meatpacking District and today is the city’s newest linear public park. The tour will be led by Ennead Architects.
