NYU & Washington Square Walking Tour

September 10, 2022

Spanning more than a century, New York University’s growth around Washington Square has followed a variety of strategies: repurposing of existing industrial buildings, incremental contextually designed new structures, and large-scale clearance and redevelopment through urban renewal, the superblocks of which are now viewed as sites for further development. Explore examples of this growth on this tour hosted by The Village Trip, a two-week festival celebrating arts and activism in Greenwich Village. Stops including notable designs by I. M. Pei, Philip Johnson, Kevin Roche, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Machado & Silvetti, Steven Holl, and Morris Adjmi. The tour is led by DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State board member Kyle Johnson.
