They say if you look up just a few degrees higher as you walk, you see a whole lot more and feel a whole lot better. This tour will have you going vertical as you check out the Lower East Side's eccentric tenements, fire escapes, and iconographic new structures. You'll discuss cultural reactions to the area's gentrification and piece together a narrative uniting these structures. So the next time you go strolling down the LES with a friend, you'll be dropping architectural knowledge like it's nobody's business.
Start in the Lower East Side and check out structures like the New Museum, Tschumi's Blue Tower, Cooper Union's Sustainable Morphosis building, and Stephen Holl's Storefront for Art and Architecture.
