GREENWICH VILLAGE?World Architecture Day launched in London last year, and now it's coming to New York. The Center for Architecture will host the three day event from Oct. 6 to 8, making it a part of the month-long Archtober event. This year's theme is "Towards Eight Billion," and events and speakers will focus on housing solutions, changing urban landscapes, and building on the water, among many other topics. It's a three-day summit packed with building tours and speakers that sounds like heaven for architecture and design lovers. The only downside is the price: £700 GBP each. Yikes.
