Here’s a look back at a special series at Sheltering Arms Pool, where we brought our BUILD NYC program (interactive building stations, playful materials, design challenges) during July 2018. Our work at Sheltering Arms Pool was in support of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation Cool Pools initiative, an effort to spruce up local pools in underserved neighborhoods and help residents make use of these amenities. The series was made possible in part by West Harlem Development Corporation.

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.
