moma PS1 has just declared american firm CODA the winner of the 2013 young architecture program for their ‘party wall’ concept. the pavilion will be built this summer in long island city as a solution to provide museum-goers a place of refuge from the beating sun. wrapped in a modular skin made of blanks – bi-products of skateboard production – from an eco-friendly manufacturer, the light steel frame structure provides shade through its verticality, in this way also creating a landmark. the angular nature of the elevation suggests a standing message, but in fact only displays the word ‘wall’ with its shadow cast on the ground, and only during a certain point in the day.

 

several pools on the ground level create micro-oases that create a strong connection to the adjacent ‘church’ installation by francesco vezzoli. the inhabitable wall will serve as a back drop to concerts, while the remaining spaces can be used as smaller stages. also elaborated on huffingtonpost, the result is a dynamic thin structure that lightly touches the ground and creates a flexible use with its unique geometry.

  • Pretty cool. Too bad it’s in a high transient city like New York; those pools may not be to safe or clean to go into.
