NEW YORK, New York (October 7, 2014) — PCPA’s new Pavilion at Brookfield Place is the firm’s most significant New York public space since its Winter Garden. Now, this new entrance to the former World Financial Center will be featured as part of New York’s annual celebration of architecture.

On Oct. 12, Craig Copeland, Associate Partner in PCPA’s New York studio and design team leader of the pavilion project, will lead a tour of this important new public space for Archtober. The pavilion, which links the Winter Garden and the newly completed Concourse that is part of the World Trade Center’s reconstruction, will also soon connect to major new transportation hubs in Lower Manhattan—the new PATH Station and Fulton Street Transit Center. The tour will include firsthand accounts of the pavilion’s 12-year design, focusing on the signature basket structures, the point-supported enclosures, and the sustainable radiant floor.

Archtober is New York City’s Architecture and Design Month, the fourth annual month-long festival of architecture activities, programs and exhibitions taking place during the month of October. Archtober presents special tours, lectures, films and exhibitions that focus on the importance of architecture and design in everyday life. Its “Building of the Day” program features daily on site tours, led by the architect.
