In a city where spacious apartments are an anomaly, New Yorkers have managed to put on their creative caps and make the most of what they've got. But what if you had only the most beautiful and expansive spaces to work with? What if you were creating the space itself?
Back for its second year, City Modern is a weeklong celebration of Gotham's finest design and architecture. And despite this city's reputation for cramped quarters, there's a lot going on. Co-hosted by Dwell and New York Magazine , the programming includes home tours, receptions, and discussions that explore the boundless creative fields of design, architecture, and art. Panels will contemplate what design can do for New York City, how architecture is infused into NYC's many creative industries, the importance of melding craftsmanship into the age of high-tech design, and more. This will certainly be an experience for the curious and the creative.
And best of all, you are getting in for free! Wednesday night's panel will feature David Rockwell in conversation with designer Isabel Toledo, artist and illustrator Ruben Toledo, and Kinky Boots producer Jerry Mitchell. Masterminds from across NYC's creative industries coming together. What a party! You do not want to miss out. Register for free using the code DWELLCOMP and you're good to go.
