Join us for a tour of Lincoln Center and the reimagined David Geffen Hall, home to the New York Philharmonic.

David Geffen Hall has undergone recent renovations culminating in a new social and public space along with a refreshed concert hall. State-of-the-art acoustics, technical capabilities, and increased flexibility of the space create a more intimate audience experience, while participatory planning and a new social practice installation support the institution’s push to create a more inclusive cultural center.

We will host a discussion and tour with Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects, Diamond Schmitt Architects, and Thornton Tomasetti. We invite Fellows to join us at a casual reception afterward to continue the conversation.

How can New York’s cultural institutions create more welcoming public spaces?
