In four days, our firm walked almost 700 miles around the culturally, architecturally, and inspirationally rich city of New York when we weren't gleaning from the talented speakers at this year's AIA Conference. Sometimes in groups, sometimes solo, Christopher Architecture and Interiors took advantage of every waking moment and every nook and cranny of design we could find. Here is a mostly-comprehensive list of places we visited and loved. We've added links to particularly interesting Instagram accounts so you can fan-girl like we are.
