The American Institute of Architects New York Chapter member showcase, MADE IN NEW YORK, is now up in the West 4th Street subway station. With ‘station domination’ of West 4th Street’s advertising space, the subway station is filled with the new work of New York’s architects. Subway posters of two hundred recent projects by AIANY members were installed this morning, and the show will remain on view for the month of October.
Building on the success of last year’s New York Now! subway exhibition, the AIA New York Chapter / Center for Architecture collected submissions of recently-designed work from their membership. Of the approximately 4400 AIANY members, two hundred submitted projects, from Pei Cobb Freed’s Nascar Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina, to the King Abdullah F.D. Mosque, in Riyahd, Saudi Arabia, by FX Fowle. Projects of all scales, located all over the globe, are represented, from Helpern’s St Agnes Library on the upper West Side, to the Jinqiao Biyun Hotel in Shanghai by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects.
