Brooklyn Children's MuseumThe 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

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, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
