openhousenewyork weekend

one of the coolest architecture and design events of the year is the openhousenewyork, taking place this weekend. the event was inspired by similar initiatives such as open house london, doors open toronto and other cities around the world. over the two days, there will be 200 architecturally interesting sites to visit, many of them off-limits to the general public otherwise, and a bunch of cultural events to check out, all free of charge. the idea of opening up the city to its own inhabitants to visit sounds odd at first, after all, the savvy urban dweller should already know where the city’s hot spots are. in any case, this type of event should happen on a more regular basis as to promote the habit of strolling. now, if you’re not going to be able to make it to the event, check out the audio media available on the website for a little bit of info on the site listings.
