ETH Zurich brings an exciting Temporary structure to First Street Garden constructed out of waste materials for the IDEAS CITY Festival 2015. The ETH Pavilion, where talks, workshops, and other events will take place over the course of three days, will redefine waste as a resource for the construction of our future cities. Using one of New York’s waste products: paper as its construction material, the expressive, compression-only surface structure has been designed to visually float in the narrow slot between the buildings of the First Street Garden. Food and Drinks will be provided by Cafe Select.

On Saturday August 9th, A collaborative effort between Urban Word NYC, City Lore, Bowery Arts & Science and First Street Green, made possible with support from the Hive Digital Learning Fund, WORDS ON WALLS combined digital learning with neo-futurist graffiti celebrating cultural diversity, neighborhood histories and the power of youth voice.The young poets were a treasure, and the Mighty Third Rail musicians were perfect with them. The projections (graphics created by the poets) were beautiful paired with the graffiti on our walls. The FSG plaza never looked better. A wonderful evening.
