Interboro’s interdisciplinary work strives to be populist, pluralist, and rooted in the realities of everyday life. In this lecture, the firm’s founding partners—Tobias Armborst, Daniel D’Oca, and Georgeen Theodore—will discuss recent design, planning, and research projects that embody their engagement with the vernacular, including a regional resiliency plan for Long Island, a forthcoming book about exclusion and inclusion in U.S. cities, and a number of participatory public space installations. Interboro’s awards include 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.
