For the fifth year in a row, the Center for Architecture and the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter are ushering in fall with a monthlong celebration of architecture and design. Dubbed Archtober, the New York City–based festival features more than 100 events ranging from workshops and panel discussions to its marquee Building of the Day program, which allows members of the public to get daily behind-the-scenes tours of new and historic landmarks, often led by the architects themselves.
