Curated by Laetitia Wolff, ExpoTENtial’s 10 multidisciplinary design labs investigate ways to raise quality of life and make smart, active, sustainable living in New York more appealing to ordinary city dwellers. Each lab addresses a challenge endemic to the urban environment.
Urban Alchemy's challenge: to revere NYC’s layered urban history and re-engage city dwellers with their urbanscape.
Inspired by Jones Alley and the shadowy back alleys that tangle NoHo’s urban fabric, Urban Alchemy Lab seeks to engage New Yorkers through a concoction of art, technology, communication design and social interaction. The city is our laboratory, and our experiment your excuse to break from the grid.
