The Architecture And Design Film Festival celebrates the creative spirit behind architecture and design with a curated selection of films, events and panel discussions. Expect well-attended screenings, legendary panelists, vibrant discussions and events at what has become nation’s largest film festival devoted to the subject. Some highlights from this year’s ADFF include “The Human Shelter,” “The New Bauhaus,” “Masters of Modern Design: The Art of the Japanese American Experience” and many, many more.
Organized by the Center for Architecture in collaboration with over 80 partners and sponsors, NYC’s architecture and design month feature hundreds of events, tours, and exhibitions organized by more than 60 partners across the five boroughs. From the Architecture and Design Film Festival to behind-the-scenes visits to the offices and studios of top architects to lectures by design experts, architecture-themed competitions and parties–and a pop-up library at Four Freedoms Park Conservancy–each year’s version continues to keep the city’s architecture crush going strong.
Launched in 2006, National Design Week is held each year in conjunction with the National Design Awards, Cooper Hewitt’s largest and most visible education initiative. The museum’s award-winning Education Department features programming that includes programs for teens and kids, career fairs and much more, culminating in a gala and awards ceremony to recognize innovators. In celebration of the event’s 20th anniversary, Cooper Hewitt will offer free admission to all museum visitors during National Design Week.

Like the name says, New York City opens its doors for one weekend each year on famous buildings and historic sites for a rare moment of access and interaction with the city and the people who design, build, and preserve it. From historical to contemporary, residential to industrial, hundreds of sites across the five boroughs offer tours, talks, performances, and other special events to help raise our understanding of the importance of architecture and urban design.
Salon Art + Design, a vetted international fair that combines styles, genres, and periods, returns for its eighth edition at the Park Avenue Armory, presenting the top international design offerings that run the gamut from vintage to modern and contemporary, enhanced by blue-chip 20th century and contemporary art, with classics like Bauhaus, Art Deco, and mid-century design coexisting with work by young and established contemporary makers.
