The Institute for Public Architecture (IPA), based in the historic Block House on Governors Island, uses design to address social, physical and environmental inequities in the city through its signature Selected Topic Fellowship and Independent Project Residency programs, and related public lectures, exhibits, and publications.

The IPA believes in a future in which design is used as a tool for facilitating social justice and the public has a voice in all decisions that shape our built environment.
