Uni pop-up installations in NYC by year

It’s been a big year for the Uni Project: 146 deployments in 75 different locations, offering pop-up reading rooms, art studios, and science exhibits in public spaces across New York City. 

Here are a few snapshots from our final outdoor deployment of 2017 on Skillman Ave in Queens. The Uni portable reading room and EXPLORE science cart landed at the Annual Skillman Ave Holiday Lights Festival in partnership NYC DOT, HYPOTHEkids, and hosts Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce, and Skillman Project. Thanks for helping us make a place for learning.

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!
