New York City’s Institute for Public Architecture (IPA) will celebrate its 6th annual Fall Fête on October 24 at the Plaxall Art Gallery in Long Island City, Queens. The benefit will honor Margaret Newman, FAIA, principal at Arup Planning, and the Queens Museum. Janette Sadik-Khan, former commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation, and Bevin Savage-Yamazaki, senior associate at Gensler will give introductory remarks.
The IPA describes its mission by saying, “We address urgent issues of design and policy by mobilizing our network of activists, professionals, government officials, and community stakeholders.”
In a statement, they said that the fundraiser will help fund its residency program and expansion of the organization’s activities beyond New York City.
