The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 have chosen ‘Party Wall’ from design firm CODA as the winner of this year’s Young Architects Program. The temporary outdoor installation will open in Long Island City in late June, providing an urban landscape for the ‘Warm Up’ summer music series in MoMA PS1’s courtyard.

‘Party Wall’ is a large-scale pavilion that provides shade and is clad with a screen of interlocking wooden scraps donated by eco-friendly skateboard manufacturer Comet. The lower portion of the facade has pieces that can be taken off to create benches and tables.

120 panels can be detached and used during different events. There are also water filled “pillows” made of a polyester-based fabric that that will be lit at night to produce a luminous effect.

Under the structure, pools and a misting station are available for cooling off during the summer. These are fed by a stream of water that runs along the top of the Party Wall and is projected into a fountain.
