As a slight heads up, for the next few weeks this blog will alternate its (almost) daily postings with plugs for my Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture, which hits bookstores on December 5th, three weeks from today. Published by W. W. Norton, the book features over 200 buildings completed since 2000, with a chapter looking ahead to projects on the horizon.
First is a reminder that Friday, November 18th is the deadline for winning a free copy of the book. The giveaway is structured as a quiz, ten trivia questions that will take no more than 15 minutes to answer. Of the high scores, two winners will be chosen at random and notified. Answers will be posted over the weekend.
TAKE THE QUIZ
And as promised, a couple events will take place in New York City in the next few weeks. See below for more information.
A launch party will take place November 21st at 7pm at Van Alen Books, 30 W. 22nd St (ground floor btw 5th and 6th ave). Come sit on the yellow steps with a glass of wine and pick up an early copy of the book. I'll talk briefly about the process of putting this guidebook together.
On December 5th at 7pm I will give a visual presentation at McNally Jackson highlighting some of my favorite buildings, as well as some lesser known gems and projects in out-of-the-way parts of the city. McNally Jackson is located at 52 Prince Street (between Lafayette + Mulberry).
