Meet at the Washington Square Arch in Washington Square Park.

With a wealth of impressive New York City architecture to explore, it can be hard to know where to begin. Look no further than AIA New York's newest tour, Walking Tour: Architecture 101 Around Washington Square Park.  

This one-hour walking tour, led by expert AIANY guides, begins at the Washington Square Arch, a Roman-inspired marble monument built during the Gilded Age. The route then heads south to explore various buildings, many of which are owned by NYU. Throughout, we’ll explore the basics of design vocabulary and architectural styles through structures concluding at I.M. Pei’s Silver Towers and Picasso’s concrete Sylvette sculpture. This power hour will expose you to a variety of architectural movements, including Greek Revival, City Beautiful, and Modernism, while exploring the sites of key land use battles during the city's urban renewal period.
