Stillspotting NYC

'To a Great City' is a self-guided tour exploring the relationship between space and sound, the collaborative work of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and New York City and Oslo -based architecture and design firm, Snøhetta. Organized for the Manhattan edition of the Guggenheim's Stillspotting NYC program, the project offers visitors the opportunity to visit five quiet spaces throughout Manhattan, curated by Snøhetta and ranging from the Battery Conservancy to an underground chamber at Governors Island National Monument to normally inaccessible interior rooms of skyscrapers.
