What else you should know

You will have the opportunity to just listen, learn, ask questions, as well as the option to dive into activities such as sketching and photographing buildings and moments in a certain light. Even without the activities, you will learn a lot of architectural history and culture!

Creative supplies
I will provide sketching pads, professional sketching pencils and pens, erasers and any accessories you may want to add on.

What to bring

Phone Camera - bring your phone or cameras if you would like to opt for photography. We will teach several techniques!

Where you'll be

We will visit landmarks such as the Highline, a new contemporary floating park above the Hudson River, buildings by famous architects such as Zaha Hadid and Diller Scofidio. I will also give you a guide to several other notable buildings sprinkled across Manhattan and other boroughs that we won't have time to visit in one tour, as well as share secrets learned while living as an architect, designer, and artist in this infamous city.
