Wooden Sculpture Transforms Into Skate Park And Public Pools
PSFK captures the latest interactive structure at MoMA PS1 in partnership with the Nokia Windows phone.
This past Thursday, PS1 — the Museum of Modern Art’s younger, more experimental offshoot — officially unveiled their temporary installation Party Wall, by NY based architecture firm CODA Studios. The project was the winner of the annual Young Architects Program (YAP) design competition, and the structure was launched with an intimate gathering of art and architecture lovers.
The 14th edition of the Young Architects Program at MoMA and MoMA PS1, this yearly contest was created to offer emerging architectural talent the opportunity to conceptualize and construct innovative projects, and design a temporary outdoor installation providing shade, seating, and water for ongoing PS1 events. Working with guidelines addressing environmental issues, sustainability, and recycling, this year’s contest winner, Party Wall, is a pavilion and flexible experimental space meant to both provide shade for the Warm Up summer concert series crowds, and act as a smartly designed multi-functional space to enhance the rest of the summer events programming.
