About New

A quarterly gathering where participants and experts explore a recent design publication 

Join New York’s only architecture and design book club (that we know of!)

The New York Architecture + Design Book Club, organized by Head Hi and the design journal Untapped, is a lively public program and book subscription series that explores remarkable new titles in the field.  The books’ authors and industry experts lead a discussion at each quarterly gathering, which seeks to build deeper connections between people, ideas, and the world in which we live.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

UPCOMING EVENTS

We will be releasing information about the first 2024 New York Architecture + Design event soon. Stay tuned!
 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE EVENT

At each gathering, the author(s) will briefly present their book to a special guest, outlining its main topics and the process of bringing the publication to life.

This introductory presentation will be followed by a conversation, open to all attendees and participants and led by the book club’s organizers, that encourages discussion and insights around the book’s content and design, and its connection to the broader architecture and design community. 

Come prepared to judge a book by its cover and look back to look forward!

Untapped_Final_Untapped-Logo.png

Untapped is a new design journal that looks back to look forward. Their stories identify the most important knowledge about improving the built environment, and contextualize it for today and tomorrow. 

 

They believe that both the near and distant past hold valuable insights for architects and designers. People have already solved, or are making headway on, many of the challenges the industry currently faces—but such achievements are often overlooked among an excess of data or in the pursuit of innovation, or when they are presented in convoluted ways. Our stories unpack and add a fresh critical perspective to those achievements, explaining why they’re significant and how they can be useful right now. 

 

Untapped is not anti-innovation. We believe that the most efficient path to progress begins with building on what we know. This is the information that the journal is dedicated to gathering, making sense of, and reflecting on, and that we can’t afford to forget. 

 

Collectively, Untapped’s stories form an encyclopedia of ideas: a gateway to knowledge that serves as a timeless, ever-growing resource for all.
