Open House New York invited the public into the studios of 14 architecture firms last spring, but bigger is better, right? This year, they are partnering with the Architectural League of New York to open the doors of more than 40 studios, ranging from bigwigs like SHoP and Studio Gang Architects to smaller innovative firms like SCAPE and nARCHITECTS. All of the firms have at one point been recognized through the League's Emerging Voices program, which has celebrated the best designers for the last three decades. The day-long OpenStudios event coincides with the publication of 30 Years of Emerging Voices, a book documenting the firms that have been part of the program. The fun takes place on Saturday, July 11, and to give design lovers time to hit as many studios as possible, the day is split into two parts. Studios in Midtown and Queens will open in the morning, while studios in Downtown and Brooklyn will host visitors in the afternoon. General admission tickets are $20, but Curbed is giving away three pairs of tickets and three copies of the book.
To enter, tell us about your favorite project created by one of the participating firms, which are listed below. Are you completely enamored with Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects's Lakeside complex in Prospect Park? Is the SHoP-designed Barclays Center your favorite building of the last decade? Do you think the architects at LOT-EK are complete geniuses when it comes to shipping container construction? We want to know what you love and why you love it. Bonus points if you have an original photo of your beloved building. Send submissions to email@example.com by noon on Wednesday, July 8.
