Get an inside tour of PBDW Architects, the award-winning design firm responsible for the ongoing restoration of the New-York Historical Society, Park Avenue Armory, and new designs such as the Moise Safra Center and Cooke School & Institute. Current projects include the lift and restoration of the historic Palace Theatre and Powerhouse Arts in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

Much of our work explores the interplay between new and old. We specialize in creating new designs in historic contexts, and we have a special reputation for the design of contemporary additions to historic buildings, and their adaptive reuse. Our vision is complemented by our extensive understanding of older methods of construction, preservation standards, and our technical expertise. We see ourselves as part of the historic process, preserving the salient aspects of historic buildings and places while adding new layers to keep them relevant and vibrant for contemporary needs.

The office tour will highlight our current and ongoing projects and offer insights into the design process behind each project.

Masks and proof of vaccination required.

Tours every 30 minutes starting at noon till 3:30pm.
