Brooklyn Children's Museum

The Uni Project has teamed up with Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) to create a science reading station inside the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Part of an exhibit called “More Than Meets the “I” exploring the new frontiers of biology, health, robotics & technology, our original Uni Tower (built in 2011) has been filled with books curated by BPL staff. This special tower also spent the summer of 2014 on Governors Island in a similar collaboration with BPL, where we provided the infrastructure and they chose the books. Thanks to Nick Higgins and Leigh Hurwitz of BPL and Marcos Stafne of BCM. Photos: Leigh Hurwitz.bcm_200x100

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 600 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!
