San Mateo County LibraryIn March 2014, The Uni Project fabricated, shipped, and installed a portable reading room for the San Mateo County Library. The inaugural deployment for this open-air reading room will be a county fair, and we’ll keep you posted where this adventurous library goes next. Thank you to all the terrific staff at San Mateo for giving us the chance to work together. You inspire us. Read on California.

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project—a portable reading room for public space. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all of our work together going forward, with much more to come.
