First Friday
Dattner Architects

Join Dattner Architects at its office for drinks, conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. The League’s First Fridays are monthly opportunities 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 brief office tours and presentations along with happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

Dattner Architects prides itself on its dedication to civic architecture and “continues to seek out opportunities to improve and sustain communities and the urban environment through its design.” Based in Manhattan, the firm employs a staff of 115 organized into three distinct, yet overlapping studios. The firm’s designs for school buildings, housing, parks, transit infrastructure, recreation facilities, and police and fire stations have earned more than 100 design awards, including a GSA Design Award, multiple Art Commission Awards from the New York City Public Design Commission, and recognition as Firm of the Year from the New York State chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Its Via Verde affordable housing complex (designed with Grimshaw Architects) in the South Bronx has won numerous awards including the AIA/HUD Secretary’s Award and an Urban Land Institute Global Award for Excellence.

In addition to their collaboration with WXY architecture + urban design on the award-winning Spring Street Salt Shed, Dattner Architects recently completed New York’s subway station at the Hudson Yards development and has begun work on 425 Grand Concourse, an affordable housing complex that doubles as North America’s largest passive house project.
