Over the course of the 1990s, The Edelman Partnership/Architects designed a wide range of projects for the NYC Department of Design and Construction.  A former women’s prison in Orange County, New York, was converted into the Camp LaGuardia for homeless housing, a project administered by New York City. The design added a dining hall and a new covered circulation complex to unify a series of existing buildings.  Another renovation project transformed a former Yiddish theater on the Lower East Side into a code-compliant, modern venue for LaMama Theater. The New Child Care Center in Far Rockaway, Queens, was the first of many community center projects for the firm.
