BUILD NYC is our new program that offers the public a way to build together and explore challenges in architecture, design, engineering and construction. On May 20, we brought BUILD to Chinatown for the Asian Pacific American Weekend Walk hosted by Chinatown Partnership. Thanks to our partners NYC DOT, NYC Department of Design and Construction, LEGO Foundation, Imagination Playground, and Magna-Tiles. BUILD NYC is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. 

Like what you see? We need help bringing BUILD NYC to more neighborhoods across the city in 2018. We’re looking for sponsors who want to see New Yorkers building together in public space. Lots of opportunities for employees to volunteer on the street (and bring their friends and family!) Contact Leslie Davol.

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.
