let’s party: party wall by CODA at PS1

partywall_MOMAPS1_1

since SHOP debuted the winning scheme for the PS1 warm-up party back in 2000, outdoor summer party has moved on to another level. it is beyond just a stage and a lot where DJ plays music and people dance. it is a place where you can dance, lounge, socialize not only during saturday nights but anytime during the day, too. ( of course, without the music part in the day time)

designed by CODA Caroline O’Donnell, Ithaca (NY)-based design and research studio, the winning entry this year is called party wall, ” a pavilion and flexible experimental space that uses its large-scale, linear form to provide shade for the Warm Up crowds, in addition to other functions. ”

we actually were pretty impressed by the installation… it looks just like the rendering… and even better!

+ Comet, an Ithaca-based manufacturer of eco-friendly skateboards, donated these cut-out plywood boards.

+ panels can be detached from the structure and used as benches and communal tables.

partywall_MOMAPS1_2+ some quiet poetic shadow were casted through the cut-outs…

partywall_MOMAPS1_4+ these blue balloons are polyester-base fabric that will be lit at night as the luminous effect.

partywall_MOMAPS1_5+ though this is nothing to do with the subject of party wall… the cafe at PS1 probably has the best ice coffee and croissant in town!! so good.
