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.
for more warm-up party information, check out MOMA PS1’s website here. the installation will be on view through september 7th 2013. that’s right, one more week extended!
