MoMA P.S.1 has announced five finalists to compete in the 2013 Young Architects Program (YAP). Now in it’s 13th edition, the competition will challenge a group of emerging architects to design a temporary installation within the walls of the P.S.1 courtyard for MoMA’s annual summer “Warm-Up” series.

This year’s finalists are CODA from Ithaca, ; Leong Leong Architects and Moorhead & Moorhead both from New York City; TempAgency from Charlottesville, Virginia and Brooklyn; and French 2D, based in Boston and Syracuse, New York.

Over the years, the YAP competition has inspired a vast amount of innovative proposals. Just check out last year’s winner, Wendy! This blue nylon beauty, designed by New York-based HWKN, graced the P.S.1 courtyard with her smog-eating, titania nanoparticle coated spikes. Learn more about the 2012 YAP award winner here.

Best of luck to the 2013 finalists!

Times Square celebrates Valentine’s Day

With barely a week away, the Alliance is eschewing flowers and candy yet again. Instead, they’re sending New Yorkers a giant designer valentine for the second year in a row, as Moorhead & Moorhead will stage an installation adjacent the TKTS Booth beginning today.
