About Us

The Design Trust for Public Space was founded in 1995 to unlock the potential of New York City's shared spaces. Today we are a nationally-recognized incubator that transforms and evolves the city's landscape with city agencies and community collaborators. Our work can be seen, felt and experienced throughout all five boroughs–from parks and plazas to streets and public buildings. Read our mission. 


All of the proceeds from this shop go directly to fund our work. Thank you for supporting us–we rely on the generosity of enthusiasts like you who care about the vibrancy of public space in NYC and beyond.
