Architecture and Design in the Himalayas Tour

Oct 14 at 12–1pm
Rubin Museum of Art, 150 W 17th St, New York, NY 10011
Organized by Rubin Museum of Art

The Rubin Museum’s building has been reincarnated more than once. It started out as tenements, was reborn as the Barneys Women’s Store in the 1980s, then reborn again as the Museum you love today, with help from the legendary architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle and designers Andre Putnam and Milton Glaser. Learn more about the building’s history and how its current design incorporates motifs from traditional Himalayan art and culture on a free public tour celebrating Open House New York. For two days each October, the Annual Open House New York weekend unlocks the doors of New York’s most important buildings, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York. Admission to the Museum is free during OHNY weekend.

NYC’s architecture and design month features hundreds of events, tours, and exhibitions organized by more than 60 partners across the five boroughs.
