Penguin Random House CompanyThanks to a generous donation from Penguin Random House, The Uni Project was able to add ten reading room deployments to our 2014 season. The company also pledged 500 books to our collection—a terrific resource that we will continue to draw upon in 2015. Thank you to Markus Dohle, CEO, and everyone at Penguin Random House for helping us create new and different places to read in neighborhoods across New York City!

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!
