This exhibition features the proposals of the five finalists of the MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program for a temporary construction at P.S.1. Now in its eighth year, the program calls on emerging architects to create an installation in P.S.1's courtyard, which will serve as the setting for Warm Up, P.S.1's celebrated summer music series. The designers present engaging architectural solutions that modulate sun, shade, and water in this outdoor space. This year's finalists included Ball-Nogues (Los Angeles), Gage/Clemenceau Architects (New York), IwamotoScott (San Francisco), Mos (Cambridge/New Haven), Ruy Klein (New York).
Organized by Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Chief Curator, and Linda Roby, Department Coordinator, Department of Architecture and Design.
