MoMA PS1 has announced that the Young Architects Program will be placed on a one-year hiatus. MoMA PS1, formerly P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit arts centers in the United States devoted to contemporary art. The Young Architects Program founded by MoMA and MoMA PS1 was made to offer emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design a temporary, outdoor installation in New York. Founded in 1971, MoMA PS1 is the first nonprofit arts center in the US devoted solely to contemporary art. Functioning as an active meeting place for the general public, MoMA PS1 aimed to be a catalyst for ideas, discourses, and new trends in contemporary art. As stated in their mission, MoMA PS1 is devoted to the "production, presentation, interpretation, and dissemination of the work of innovative artists in all mediums, fostering creativity and uninhibited artistic exploration." MoMA PS1 also serves constituencies beyond New York with traveling exhibitions, a studio program, publications, and representation by professional staff.
