Update: We've added a 360 rendering of "Lumen" to the post, after the break (courtesy Jenny Sabin)! Jenny Sabin Studio’s “Lumen,” winner of the Museum of Modern Art’s 2017 Young Architects Program, has made its debut in the MoMA PS1 Courtyard in New York City, where it will play host to the 20th season of Warm Up, MoMA PS1’s pioneering outdoor music series. Constructed from more than 1,000,000 yards of “digitally knitted and robotically woven fiber,” this year’s structure features 250 hanging tubular structures designed to capture and display the ever-changing color of sunlight over the course of the day. “Socially and environmentally responsive, Lumen’s adaptive architecture is inspired by collective levity, play, and interaction as the structure transforms throughout the day and night, responding to the density of bodies, heat, and sunlight,” explains MoMA PS1.
