Interboro Partners is a Brooklyn-based office of architects, urban designers, and planners "who work together to improve the urban environment." Founded in 2002 and led by Tobias Armborst, Daniel D'Oca, and Georgeen Theodore, Interboro has engaged in projects "that represent an ever-expanding concept of what architecture is, of how it acts on the world, but also how it is acted upon by individuals, institutions, ideas, idealizations, and objects." Recent projects include LentSpace, a temporary sculpture park in lower Manhattan; Made in Midtown, a project with the Design Trust for Public Space, researching Manhattan's garment district; The Arsenal of Exclusion/Inclusion, a "dictionary" of policies, institutions, and phenomena that foster and restrict access to the built environment, produced for the 2009 International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam; and West Market Redevelopment Plan for the City of Newark. The office has received numerous grants and fellowships from institutions, including the Design Trust for Public Space, the Graham Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts. Interboro Partners was selected by the Architectural League in 2005 to participate in the Young Architects Forum (now known as the Architectural League Prize) and were the 2011 winners of the P.S.1 and MoMA Young Architects Program.
