This year we're doing it a little different, with the same purpose:
Support design + social impact in our community.


On January 18th, join OACny in celebrating social impact, great design and the gift of community in New York City.

We invite you to join us as we toast to this our accomplishments in 2017 and kick off an exciting 2018. Festivities will include our classic annual firm vs. firm gingerbread competition, a gift raffle, seasonal refreshments and more.

As always, all funds donated for this event will be put towards OACny's projects that provide positive social impact and promote community engagement in New York City. Help us continue our great work by donating today!

Thank you to our partners, sponsors and dedicated volunteers for a successful Day of Impact.

Please stay tuned for details about our Winter Celebration in January of 2018.

A huge thank you to our
host + sponsor:

We look forward to seeing you!



The Data Shows:
A Global Network of Impact

This year, our global chapter has compiled visual data recognizing the accomplishments around the global Open Architecture Collaborative

"In 2017 the Open Architecture Collaborative supported 21 chapters who hosted over 425 volunteers serving 94 nonprofit and community groups. Over 1,140 people have signed up to volunteer since we launched in March of last year, but those numbers are slowing down. 2017 saw a booming building economy and professionals with less time. When the economy dips, designers lose work and their jobs. But we get creative and volunteer to continue gaining knowledge and experience."
