Interboro is a Brooklyn-based practice spanning the fields of architecture, landscape, furniture design, and urban planning.  Their clients include institutions, universities, federal and local government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private developers.

Principals Tobias Armborst, Daniel D’Oca and Georgeen Theodore met in graduate school at Harvard University, united by a desire to establish a practice that operates between disciplines. Interboro’s projects defy categorization, and include murals, essays, landscape urbanism interventions, work in furniture and interior design, neighborhood planning, among others. Rigorous research is a central component to all of their projects, regardless of their scale.


Interboro’s efforts to engage the community permeate throughout their work. Their commitment to public engagement manifests itself in projects for plazas and parks, neighborhood workshops, numerous writings and essays to educate and promote discussion, and their involvement in organizations like the Design Trust for Public Space.

The office has won many awards and been honored by the Architecture League of New York. Interboro also designed Holding Pattern, MoMA PS1’s 2011 Summer Warm Up installation.
