NEW YORK, NY.-
- This October, the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter
will send out the message that design matters by highlighting the work of New York architects through our member showcase, MADE IN NEW YORK. Building on the success of last year's New York Now! subway exhibition, the AIA New York Chapter/Center for Architecture will open MADE IN NEW YORK in the West 4th Street subway station on October 6, as part of the Center for Architecture's Annual Architecture Week.
In an effort to include the work of all AIA New York Chapter members, this year's call includes work from around the world by Chapter members. AIANY will be soliciting works of all scales and types - small, large, commercial, residential, public, private, interiors, historic preservation, engineering, landscape and urban design. Together, they will present the scope and quality of work being done by AIA New York Chapter members across the globe. MADE IN NEW YORK posters will canvas the station, showing commuters and tourists alike the tremendous design being generated in New York City. This high-visibility exhibition will offer a snapshot of current practice and celebrate the diversity of the Chapter's membership.
"MADE IN NEW YORK will showcase the work that, despite the recession, New York's AIA members are doing around the world," said Rick Bell, FAIA, AIANY executive director. "From Manhattan to Mumbai, the design talent assembled here in Gotham is creating cutting-edge structures and wonderfully sustainable communities. Subway posters at the West 4th Street station let the world - and the straphangers-know that design in NYC runs both express and local."
