New & Notable Tour: Starchitecture NYC, 2011

tour frank gehry iac building new yorkSince the turn of the 21st century, dozens of new buildings and public spaces by celebrated American and international designers have been added to New York’s cityscape. This fall, MAS is offering four opportunities to view and visit a number of these exemplary designs in one concentrated, three-hour tour. We will travel by small motor coach, with stops to take a closer look on the ground and to step inside selected buildings. Architectural historian Matt Postal is our stellar tour leader. Matt specializes in 20th & 21st century architecture and urbanism and may be particularly known to MAS tour takers for his well-received series, Skyscraper National Park. He also co-authored Guide to New York City Landmarks and The Municipal Art Society of New York: 10 Architectural Walks in Manhattan. He possesses a winning combination oftraits in a guide: depth of knowledge, excellent pacing and an easy manner. Because our reserved tours have been consistently selling out, we are offering this tour four times from September to December. Whether you are a life-long New Yorker or are coming to town for your first—or your latest—visit, sign up now for Starchitecture NYC, 2011. $55, $49 MAS members. 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. September 24 October 15 November 19 December 17 For further information, contact Jessica Halem, Director of Tours & Programs,
