NYC Plaza Project

The NYC Plaza Project is a research project to explore the potential of outdoor meeting and coworking spaces during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Throughout New York City, a number of public plazas are available for modular benches and coworking spaces to be tested upon. The interventions may be placed strategically at different locations the main pedestrian and biking corridors within the city.
