Building of the Day 2018: TWA Hotel by Eero Saarinen, Beyer Blinder Belle, and Lubrano Ciavarra Architects.

This Archtober, share your firm’s New York City-based works with architecture enthusiasts! Archtober is accepting nominations for projects to be included in New York City’s month-long festival of architecture and design. Each day in October 2019, we will spotlight a Building of the Day as a noon-time, architect-led tour. 

Building of the Day tours are the centerpiece of Archtober. With the goal of making exemplary architecture and the work of architects more accessible to the general public, the lunchtime tours, led by project architects, generate international publicity and provide a platform for engagement in important issues in the New York City built environment.

Previous Buildings of the Day include the World Trade Center Transportation Hub (Downtown Design Partnership: STV, AECOM, and Santiago Calatrava), the TWA Hotel (Eero Saarinen, Beyer Blinder Belle, and Lubrano Ciavarra Architects), Kew Gardens Hills Library (WORKac), Barclays Center (SHoP Architects), and the Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage and Salt Shed (Dattner Architects and WXY).

Please complete and send the submission form. The building can be located in any of the five boroughs of New York City and does not need to be a recently completed project. The building should be nominated by the architect, who is responsible for clearing the copyrights of the images submitted. The deadline is Friday, May 17, 2019. Building of the Day sites will be announced this summer.

Please email submissions to with the subject line “Building of the Day Submission.”
