Archtober 2016 is about to commence as the sixth annual citywide, month-long festival of design and architecture in New York City

AIA New York Chapter has signalled the public to start making plans for October as it discloses its highly regarded Building of the Day lineup. Archtober is about to host tours of the latest architectural highlights in the five divisions of New York City for only 31 days. More details regarding the tours and events of Archtober can be seen here: archtober.org
