As a member of the GSAPP Incubator, Kinderpublic participated in the Columbia GSAPP End of Year Show which showcased exciting and innovative work over the course of the year from the university community across all departments of the school. Our focus was on creating a digital platform to help families with young children plan more convenient itineraries and outings. The research undertaken involved mapping and categorizing how accessible public and private spaces are in New York City for families.
The GSAPP Incubator is a program for recent alumni to explore interdisciplinary projects and research at the intersection of culture, technology and the city. Located in downtown Manhattan at the center of the creative and technology scene at the New Museum, the Incubator was an anchor tenant of NEW INC., the first museum-led cultural incubator for art, technology, and design.
Co-founders Cevan Castle and Annie Chen presented their work alongside fellow members of the Incubator during the fall and spring sessions. Their research included topics such as the changing nature of work and the growing freelancer economy for creative professionals in cities. With the rise of new work environments such as co-working spaces, how do we make these places accessible for different groups of people?
