We could never have created the Uni Project without a partnership with our friends Meejin Yoon, Eric Höweler and the team at HY Architecture. They’ve designed all our infrastructure, responding patiently and gracefully to our crazy requests, including the first one back in 2011: build an eight foot cube that unfolds into a reading room for public space.

Meejin has just been appointed head of MIT Architecture. Congratulations Meejin!

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
