For the annual MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, Brooklyn-based Interboro Partners Tobias Armborst, Daniel DOca, and Georgeen Theodore orchestrated the piece Holding Pattern.
Holding Pattern, unlike previous YAP winning projects, explicitly connects the museum courtyard to its Long Island City neighborhood. Interboro asked area groups what they needed and then incorporated those objects into their design.
The PS1 courtyard is sheltered by a fabric canopy that ties into the museum's concrete wall. When Holding Pattern comes down in the fall, its benches, lounges, and ping-pong tables will be distributed to new homes.
