An Important Update About League Programming

23 March 12:00pm
New York

Dear members and friends of The Architectural League:

In recognition of our collective responsibility to minimize opportunities for transmission of COVID-19, The Architectural League has suspended its live programming through April 15. We are working to find new ways to communicate the ideas and work that our speakers and panelists would have presented, as well as to keep our community connected and supported. We will continue to produce and publish new material on urbanomnibus.net and archleague.org, and urge you to follow the League on social media channels to keep abreast of new developments.

Many of our programs will be rescheduled; information about rescheduled events will be posted as it becomes available. As we work to reschedule and reformat upcoming programming, we will update this page to bring you revised event details and any other announcements. 

League staff is working remotely, but we continue to be available by email. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions, concerns, or suggestions of ways in which we can support the community.

The League is grateful for your continued involvement and support as we navigate these circumstances and uncharted territory together.

With best regards,Paul Lewis, PresidentRosalie Genevro, Executive Director
