Who we are

Archtober is New York City’s Architecture and Design Month, the annual festival of architecture activities, programs, and exhibitions taking place during the month of October.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, many of our partners are hosting programs digitally, allowing visitors from across the globe to participate in our exploration of architecture and design—in New York City and beyond.
