Team BUILD is in New York City for fashion week and there’s some cool events going on that are worth getting on your radar. First a couple of easy ways to keep tabs on us as we’re running around the big city:

If you’re not already part of our twitter feed, you can hop on board here. We’ll be keeping a tab on gorgeous design in NYC with the #NYFW hashtag (New York Fashion Week).

While we’re jumping from one venue to the next we’ll be checking in via Foursquare – if you’re interested in NYC hotspots link up to us and use slick tools like Weeplaces to graphically map us.

We’ll be vetting-out and updating our ever expanding Modern List Manhattan. As always, we look forward to any modern recommendations you might have -so hit that comments button and get them on our radar.

Here’s a few new spots to wet your palette: Tartinery, Torrisi Italian Specialties,  and The Raines Law Room

The savvy folks at Brizo are responsible for bringing BUILD out to NYC, and you’ll be hearing from us about some cool events Brizo is putting on involving good design, new ideas and cross-pollination – 3 of our faves.








Among the big ticket items on the agenda in NYC is meeting up with wunderkind fashion designer Jason Wu. At 27 he’s made quite a name for himself in the fashion world after the First Lady wore the Jason Wu label at Obama’s inauguration. Since then Wu has partnered with Brizo on design and we’ll be sitting courtside (or runway-side as it may be) at Wu’s show.

We’ll also be joining Brizo for a cocktail party at the Showtime House where several condominiums have been cleverly outfitted to replicate your favorite shows like Weeds, Dexter and Californication to name a few. Should be a good time and, being a nuts-and-bolts operation,  we’ll be reporting back with some good details.

The Cooper Hewitt is presenting the National Design Triennial which focuses on the most innovative designs at the center of contemporary culture. In this fourth exhibition in the series, the National Design Triennial will explore the work of designers addressing human and environmental problems -sign us up!

…and we’ll be hitting up the usual suspects like MOMA and the Center for Architecture.

Cheers from team BUILD and virtual martinis all around.
