MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program

Daniel D'Oca, Georgeen Theodore, and Tobias Amborst of Interboro Partners.

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.

Artist Lesser Gonzales' playful illustration maps the connections between PS1 and the community.

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.

A smaller courtyard is filled with red oak trees. Nametags hung from the trunks identify where in Long Island City each tree will eventually put down roots.
