Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek Partnership) will lead intimate tours of buildings throughout New York City that showcase the diversity of the firm’s acclaimed portfolio.

The Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space
Wednesday, August 25
6:30 – 7:30 pm

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Rose Center for Earth and Space redefined the American Museum of Natural History for the 21st century. Housed within a glass cube, the 87-foot in diameter Hayden Sphere is an immediately recognizable icon of the institution and New York City. Inside, an articulated spatial experience inspires visitors with an understanding of the wonders of the universe and the power of scientific inquiry.

The Rose Center “brings us face to face with something commensurate to our capacity for wonder” and is “an aesthetic apparition as well as a major civic event…unafraid of revealing the deep roots from which modern architecture arose,” according to Herbert Muschamp of The New York Times.

Ennead Architects will lead visitors on a tour of the Rose Center. Tickets available here.

The Standard New York
Wednesday, September 8
6:30 – 7:30 pm

Named the #1 best building of the decade by Curbed NY, The Standard New York is an eighteen-story, concrete and glass structure that provides a sleek, modern counterpoint to the historic Meatpacking district. Already a landmark in the newly re-activated city fabric of the West Village, it has been heralded as “the kind of straightforward, thoughtfully conceived building that is all too rare in the City today.”

Todd Schliemann, Partner in Ennead Architects and designer of the building, will lead the tour. Tickets available here.

Stay tuned for Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, the last tour in the series, continuing after OHNY Weekend.
