ARCHTOBER 2016: GUIDED TOUR THROUGH ABRAHAM'S ACFNY
WEDNESDAY OCT 19, 04:00 PM
On occasion of Archtober 2016, the Austrian Cultural Forum provides visitors the opportunity to tour the architectural landmark building in midtown Manhattan. We offer a free guided tour every Wednesday at 4:00 PM.
Architectural historian Kenneth Frampton called the Austrian Cultural Forum, designed by Austrian architect and theorist Raimund Abraham (1933–2010), the most spectacular modern structure built in New York since the Seagram Building and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum. With a width of 7.6 meters and a depth of 25 meters, the 24-story tower with its symmetrical glass façade, Abraham succeeded in producing extraordinary stylistic elements that elude any architectural trend.
Archtober is New York City’s Architecture and Design Month, the sixth annual month-long festival of architecture activities, programs and exhibitions taking place during the month of October. Archtober presents special tours, lectures, film screenings and exhibitions that focus on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. Organized by the Center for Architecture in collaboration with partnering organizations across the city, the festival raises awareness of the important role of design in our city and the richness of New York’s built environment.
