This exhibition features the five finalists’ proposals from the MoMA/MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP), and the five finalists from each of our affiliated programs—in Rome at the National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI), in Santiago, Chile (CONSTRUCTO), in Istanbul, Turkey (Istanbul Modern) and in Seoul, Korea (MMCA). Now in its 16th edition, the Young Architects Program at MoMA PS1 offers emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present creative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop highly innovative designs for a temporary outdoor installation that provides shade, seating, and water. The architects must also work within guidelines that address environmental issues, including sustainability and recycling. The winning designs by Andrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation (New York, NY) in Long Island City; CORTE (Rome, Italy) in Rome; PATTU (Istanbul, Turkey) in Istanbul; and Society of Architecture (Seoul, Korea) in Seoul will be on view throughout the summer in the courtyards of the respective museums, and in Santiago, Chile, from March through May 2016.
