The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, Queens, has an annual competition that gives emerging architects the opportunity to build projects for P.S.1’s courtyard. This years winner is “afterparty” by the architectural firm MOS. It is a temporary urban shelter and passive cooling station with chimney-like shapes created by a lightweight aluminum frame that is clad in a layer of mesh and palm fibers. The architectural installation creates the setting for the “Warm Up” events which are super fun dance parties that occur throughout the summer. Together, the music, architecture and exhibition program provide a unique multi-sensory experience for music fans, artists, and families alike. The Young Architects Program has been creating exciting spaces since 1998, and one of my favourites is last year’s “P.F.1: Public Farm One” by WORK Architecture Company.
