Tickets are still available for tonight's 7pm guided tour of our landmark building and its historic interiors, including the elegant the Board of Officers Room, pictured here. The room was designed by Herter Brothers—a top cabinet maker and interior design firm—in 1880, and it still maintains its signature warm and richly-colored mahogany wainscoting. Grab tickets for tonight's tour or check out additional dates in July and August via the link in our bio (📷: James Ewing) #ParkAvenueArmory #Architecture

Opening tomorrow, Hansel & Gretel is the latest collaboration between Pritzker Prize-winning architects #JacquesHerzog and #PierredeMeuron (of @herzogdemeuron) and artist/activist Ai Weiwei (@aiww). The installation explores the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world by creating a disconcerting and unexpected environment within the Armory’s vast Wade Thompson Drill Hall, where the audience’s every movement is tracked and surveyed by drones and communicated to an unknown public #PAAHanselAndGretel (📷: James Ewing)
