We’ve been a little quiet on the publishing front for the last couple days, and that’s because we have news! We’ll be joining the GSAPP Incubator at the New Museum, run by Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation for the 2016 to 2017 year. The aim of the incubator is to be a “launch pad for new ideas and projects about architecture, culture, and the city.” That’s a mission we can get behind!
We will work alongside the New Museum’s NEW INC Incubator, which is dedicated to art, design and technology. The incubator has an event space, fabrication lab with things like 3D printers, and other fun stuff. We’re excited to be inspired by the members of the incubator which included last year a founding member of +POOL, the filtering pool for the East River, researcher Forrest Jesse, creative and design consultancy Consortia, and numerous architects and practices.
We’re excited to be able to soon offer panel events with the many experts that write, give tours, and are part of the Untapped Cities community. We’re also working on a complete web design overhaul for Untapped Cities, that readers should see by end of September and have some projects we can’t reveal yet up our sleeve!
In the meantime, we’re sad to be leaving our digs at Nowhere Studios in Brooklyn, a wonderful co-working space that truly builds a community. How many other co-working spaces have an über-adorable resident cat, a rooftop deck where you can grow vegetables and herbs, and street art by Swoon inside and out?
