From the architect. A few weeks ago we shared with you photographs of this year's P.S.1 Young Architects Program winning design, "Holding Pattern", while in the process of installing its canopy piece. Now we are bringing you the completed structure which is open to the public through September 19th.

Designed by Interboro Partners, Tobias Armborst, Daniel D’Oca, and Georgeen Theodore, "Holding Pattern" is a community based design that incorporates both the program requirements and the communities needs.  Stretching the funds, Interboro Partners will be able to serve two purposes; as the materials will be recycled, donating ping pong tables, benches, and flood lights, (a total of 79 items) to over 50 organizations in the Long Island neighborhood.

Recycled plywood, sandboxes, both ping-pong and foosball tables, even a lifeguard stand and wading pools current fill MoMA's well known P.S.1 courtyard space.  This courtyard in Queens will also host the Warm Up 2011 concert series from July 2nd through September 3rd.

I am losing my faith on PS1

This may be a project for social responsibility, but if it is, then it is also a project against architectural space.
Social responsibility is a belief that people should act to the benefit of society at large. So, when asked to propose an architectural installation, these artists have proposed to make a flimsy canopy and channel the rest of the money into street furniture for the surrounding community. The underlying message here is that architecture is against the best interests of society large, and in order to benefit society we should instead focus our efforts on supplying people with ping-pong tables!

If some one is moderating this, please add my previous post... It's not lewd!

Not only do I disagree with this assessment of architecture, I also take issue with the fact that this proposal pretends to be architecture by draping itself with a cheap fabric canopy. Not only does this betray their message, by unnecessarily channeling resources into the production of something that does not give back to society: namely architecture. This also produces a weak and ugly representation of what architecture is capable of achieving in the benefit of society of large.
I call interboro partners artist because they clearly do not believe architecture has a place in a better tomorrow, and so, are not acting as architects.

Not looking forward to PS1 warm up this year
yes I do agree some of the past winners were fantastic

nomad · June 23, 2011

i commend the social responsibility but i also agree that the spatial qualities are very unmemorable as opposed to those created by past participants. I.E. SO-IL, SHoP, even MOSS

hmmm...Maybe social architecture is more about the inner beauty. I guess they couldn't achieve that parabolic shape that was proposed.

socially responsible, but bland and unmemorable.
