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.

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.
