ArchiNATI 2013 Festival Event Schedule

ArchiNATI Logo

The 2013 ArchiNATI Architecture Festival

Dates: October 4th-October 13th

The festival is ArchiNATI’s main focus. It is a series of events that take place each fall to celebrate the ARCHItecture of CincinNATI. Held annually since 2011, a variety of entertainment events highlight the schedule. The events are a celebration of where your interests intersect with architecture. Cities are large so in order to narrow ArchiNATI’s focus, there is an annual theme. This year’s theme:

“Citizen Space”

Experience famous Greater Cincinnati spaces in fresh ways and uncover exciting new places. Discover CITIZEN SPACE! Citizen space is more than publicly owned buildings and land, but the idea that each citizen has a right to a city’s spaces, a stake in its culture, and a say in its built environment. For many of us, the term built environment connotes boundaries in our everyday life. During ArchiNATI 2013, we’ll cross those boundaries and celebrate YOUR spaces to discover.
