The winning design for MoMA/P.S.1’s invitational Young Architects Competition, the most significant annual architectural competition, our built installation in MoMA/P.S.1 gallery courtyard served as an urban beach during the day and venue for Warm Up, a techno/electronica rave during the night.
Hipsters. Art critics. Children.
We started by analysing the users to understand all of their potential use-cases and motivations. When the problems and users were clearly defined we iterated a series of design explorations to find the right design philosophy and aesthetic to satisfy their expectations and delight.
As the only team member to work on the project continuously from beginning to end I was involved in every step of the project from conception to completion.
The design itself was shaped by a series of experiential phrases drawing on perspective, tactility and procession. Material, colors, form and function all brought together to create a scene.
