Third Spaces Lab
Third Spaces are the newest focus area for New Urban Mechanics.
We define Third Spaces as places that contribute to our collective well-being, and that are located between:
- home (our “first spaces”), and
- work (our “second spaces”).
These include everything from parks to barbershops to coffee shops. They are places where we welcome, connect, and create with others. As part of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ i-teams Program, the City is embarking upon a series of initiatives aimed at sparking community-driven enhancements to these vital spaces. They must be invested in, continuously updated, and designed from the bottom up.
Stay tuned for updates!
