Event Details

As part of NYCxDESIGN, the Center for Architecture will host an Archtober preview featuring five days of building tours across the five boroughs, with a focus on cultural institutions. Join us on Friday, May 17 for a tour of the Bronx River Greenway River House.

The Bronx River Greenway River House, nearing completion, is the base of operations for the Bronx River Greenway and the adjacent portion of the Bronx River. The Bronx River Alliance will occupy the building and manage it on behalf of the park, the public, and community groups. The Bronx River House will approach net-zero energy and will use rainwater-irrigated living facades to create a favorable microclimate. The project received a Design Award from the Art Commission of the City of New York.

Architect: Kiss + Cathcart
