Archtober 2019, New York City's month-long architecture and design festival, is approaching the halfway point, and there's still so much happening!
Bustler and our sister site Archinect have partnered with Archtober for the ninth year in a row and present you our weekly highlights from a packed calendar. Below are our event recommendations for Archtober 2019 Week 3, October 17–24.
The Rose Main Reading Room and Bill Blass Lending Room are located in the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.

After one of the rosettes fell in May 2014, WJE investigated and developed a restoration program which included reinforcement of all suspended plaster, allowance for plaster ceiling expansion, fibrous plaster consolidation, crack injection and new plaster work at damaged areas.
