Offices of nARCHITECTS
68 Jay St, Suite 317 (Third Floor)
Join Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang of nARCHITECTS at their office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. New projects to be featured include ABC-Dbayeh, department store and cinema facades, located in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as a new bamboo pavilion for the Da Nung Da Fu Forest Art Festival in Wua Lien, Taiwan. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
nARCHITECTS recent and ongoing projects range from buildings to ephemeral environments, and include Switch Building in Manhattan; Windshape in Lacoste, France; Canopy for MoMA/P.S.1; a new park for the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus; and Villa-Villa in Ordos, China. In 2009, nARCHITECTS was selected by MoMA to lead a design team for the Rising Currents Exhibition, on view last year.
