New Deadlines

2016 Oculus Editorial Calendar
The Oculus 2015 Editorial Calendar has been set.

You may submit projects/topics from anywhere, but architects must be New York-based. Please submit story ideas/projects by the deadlines indicated below to Kristen Richards, Hon. AIA, Hon. ASLA:

Spring: Institutional Urban Campuses / New York – Science + Research City
How educational, health-care and other institutions fit into the city’s urban fabric; how they are evolving; what are the challenges they face. How can architecture make these large campuses good neighbors? What amenities can they share?

Winter: Preservation & Reinvention / Rethinking Preservation / Preservation & Urbanism / Preservation Today
