Art And Farming At PS1 Queens
I'll admit I used to love the Summer WarmUp series at PS1 Museum in Queens. It had a good run of interesting architecture installations compliments of the Young Architects Program. And the music was pretty cool. Then a few years ago it got in a rut. Well from an architectural standpoint. All the installations looked too much the same.
Hence my jaw dropping when this years pick was unveiled created by NYC based Work Architecture. It's a huge departure in both form and function from years past. Work's husband and wife team Dan Wood and Amale Andraos proposed a working farm complete with a varied crop of produce and a plan to harvest it all. They have imagined growing everything from mint to peas, fennel and pumpkins in individual cardboard tubes commonly used to create concrete molds.
