About meStreet Lab creates programs for public space.

We're a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and we do this work because we care deeply about shared public space and shared public experiences. It’s more important than ever that our towns, cities, and communities make successful public spaces. We're working on new ideas to contribute to that effort.

About my librarySince starting this work in 2006 and incorporating as a nonprofit in 2009, we’ve executed a range of projects, from small, one-day events to complex installations that operate as mini-institutions over several months. We’re currently working on a specific challenge: how to bring books and learning to street-level, and we’ve designed a new project called the Uni to do this.

In 2009, we created the Chinatown Storefront Library which transformed one of Boston Chinatown’s vacant, commercial, street-level spaces into a temporary public library. Operating for approximately three months, the project created a memorable event for Chinatown, while providing a selection of urgently needed services for a community that had been without a library since 1956. The library offered: books, Internet access, newspapers, a children's reading area, and a mix of programs and activities. The project's purpose was to activate street-level space with an installation that demonstrated the potential impact of a library in the neighborhood. It will also model how cities can move forward in tough economic times to activate urban space.
