AN’s Commitment
to Safety

The organizing committee of Facades+ is optimistic about holding Facades+ New York City, 2022, as a live, in-person event. As we prepare, our commitment is to deliver a unique and memorable event on April 13, 2022, while remaining mindful of the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation. AN will be following and strictly adhering to the State of New York safety protocols.

This rise in the infection rate has also brought some tighter restrictions that we are now putting in place for the March event. To ensure safety for all, we will require all attendees, sponsors, and staff to show proof of a vaccine.  Additionally, as per the mask guidance that went into effect in NYC on December 13th, masks will be required at all times.

If we all adhere to these safety guidelines, The Architect’s Newspaper is confident we will have a safe and healthy in-person event. Thank you in advance for your compliance – and we look forward to seeing you in March!



Your safety is our top priority. We believe that these precautions will permit a safe, in-person environment for Facades+ New York City and the remaining AN events in 2022. We will be monitoring the evolving COVID situation closely and will update our policies as necessary.

These procedures are subject to change in accordance with CDC guidelines and local health department guidelines at the time of each event. For more information, please check the local government’s current guidance
