The Young Architects Program at MoMA invites emerging studios to propose a temporary installation that can host the summer events of the PS1 Contemporary Art Centre.
CODA’s winning proposal, entitled Party Wall, is for a linear structure that will incorporate events spaces, seating areas, stages and projections areas, as well as pools of water that will function as “cooling stations”….
The interlocking cladding panels will be made from wooden offcuts donated by a skateboard manufacturer and some of them will be removable and used to build tables and benches.
“CODA’s proposal was selected because of its clever identification and use of locally available resources - the waste products of skateboard-making - to make an impactful and poetic architectural statement within MoMA PS1’s courtyard,” said MoMA curator Pedro Gadanho.
