From The Architect's Newspaper:

"Located at First Park, on Houston at 2nd Ave., the New York segment of Confronting Comfort will run from August 3 to October 16. Housed in a lightweight carbon-fiber pavilion designed by Atelier Bow-Wow, the Lab seeks to explore how urban environments can be made more responsive to people's needs through a diverse array of programs that run the gamut from workshops to discussions, screenings, and off-site tours.
