AD Design Show 2017: 7 Design Spots Worth a Visit in NYC
Going to NYC for AD Design Show 2017? Here are 7 design spots you can’t miss! Experience design in a whole new level: from interior design to architectural landmarks, lighting fixtures and much more! Today our article is all about taking the best of New York Design Week!
AD Design Show 2017 is taking place in New York, at Pier 92 & 94, from 16th to the 19th of March. This is a four-day design experience, expecting more than 400 brands, getting together to celebrate design.
We already know that you are dying to go to Times Square and Central Park West, take a look at the Empire State Building and lose yourself at MoMa. However today, we made a suggestion a bit unconventional, going beyond tourist preferences. Let’s have a look!
Park Avenue Armory
Far from a conventional museum, the Park Avenue Armory is renowned for both its cutting-edge cultural programming and its impressive architecture. The Armory has an active calendar of cultural events and offers guided tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Spa Nalai At The Park Hyatt
On the 25th floor of the One57 skyscraper, Spa Nalai at the Park Hyatt New York has a stunning space and amazing views. The whole Yabu Pushelberg-designed hotel exudes modern elegance, from the Living Room bar and the Back Room restaurant, to the Onyx Room for events, and, of course, the spa.
TWA Flight Center
The disused TWA Terminal at JFK Airport is New York City’s most spectacular example of mid-century modernism. Eero Saarinen built the terminal in 1962 as the hub of TWA, when air travel represented the promise of the future. The pristine white building is all curves, on the inside and out. Concrete and glass blend seamlessly, complemented by the minimalist red walkways and seating areas.
The impressive space is famous for its rotating dance floor and glitzy crystal chandelier. Countless stars have walked its floors (Cole Porter, Elizabeth Taylor, and Michael Jackson, to name a few) and legendary bartender Dale DeGroff revolutionized the way we think of cocktails, paving the way for the craft cocktail movement.
Weylin B. Seymour’s
Built in 1875 as the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, this breathtaking building reopened as a private event space last year after a four-year restoration.
Inside, the main hall features a dome painted in vivid blue, red, and gold. The original cage elevator ferries guests to the upper floors, where rooms with Art Nouveau wallpaper and fireplaces are used for meetings and dinners.
Dubbed the Cathedral of Commerce, the Woolworth Building was the world’s tallest skyscraper when it was completed in 1913. The man behind it, Frank Woolworth, had changed the way Americans shop with his “Five-and-Dime” stores, and he commissioned architect Cass Gilbert to construct the Gothic tower.
Recently reopened after sitting abandoned for over 37 years, the Kings Theater is Brooklyn’s most opulent performance space. Originally opened in 1929 as a venue for films and live performances, it was named one of Loew’s five “Wonder Theaters,” famous for its Old World splendor.
