Architect in ChargeTobias Armborst, Daniel D’Oca, and Georgeen Theodore
Text description provided by the architects. 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.
The Young Architects Program is now in its 12th annual year.
