14th edition, the Young Architects Program
The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 announce the opening of Party Wall, the CODA (Caroline O'Donnell, Ithaca, NY) -designed winner of the annual Young Architects Program (YAP) in New York. Now in its 14th edition, the Young Architects Program at MoMA and MoMA PS1 is committed to offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects, challenging each year's winners to develop creative designs for a temporary, outdoor installation at MoMA PS1 that provides shade, seating, and water. The architects must also work within guidelines that address environmental issues, including sustainability and recycling. CODA, drawn from among five finalists, designed a temporary urban landscape for the 2013 Warm Up summer music series in MoMA PS1's outdoor courtyard. Party Wall is a pavilion and flexible experimental space that uses its large-scale, linear form to provide shade for the Warm Up crowds, in addition to other functions. CODA is an Ithaca-based experimental design and research studio operating at a range of scales. CODA's work is a negotiation between form and the environment. Full informations on the web site.
