Every year, we anxiously await the announcement of the winner of MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP) — the news means that cutting edge summer fun is just around the corner! This year’s winning pavilion has just been revealed, and we are thrilled to announce that once again, a local firm HWKN has taken the top prize.
HWKN created a zany platform and pavilion called Wendy that includes combines water canons, air cleaning capabilities, and a massively cool, spiky-armed design. During its tenure at the courtyard, Wendy, this incredible project will remove emissions equivalent to taking 260 cars off the road and will no doubt make the 13th Warm-Up music series one of the best yet.
Really fantastic Wendy! Congratulations to the winner of MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program.
