Interboro Partners is a New York City-based architecture, urban design, and planning office that specializes in the design of public spaces. Interboro’s participatory, place-specific approach builds on what’s there and deploys simple, resourceful design solutions to create open, accessible environments that work for everyone.
Founded in 2002 by three graduates of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Interboro has won many awards for its innovative projects, including the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, the AIA New York Chapter’s New Practices Award, and the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and Young Architects Awards. Interboro’s work has been published and exhibited widely. Interboro has been featured in the New York Times, Places, Urban Omnibus, I.D. Magazine, Architecture Magazine, the Architect’s Newspaper, Lotus International, Metropolis, Praxis, dwell and Verb, and has been exhibited at Venice Biennale, MoMA, MoMA PS1, MAXXI, Netherlands Architecture Institute, Walker Art Center, Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Center for Architecture, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, and the German Architecture Museum.
Interboro has recently realized projects for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Cambridge, MA Community Development Department, the Boston Redevelopment Department, the Boston Transportation Department, MoMA PS1, the Venice Biennale, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Vassar College, and Harvard University, among others. Interboro’s book The Arsenal of Exclusion & Inclusion is an encyclopedia about accessibility and the built environment that will be published by Actar in early 2016.
