CODA Named 2013 Young Architects Program Winner at MoMA PS1

22 January, 2013

-By Emily Hooper



The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and MoMA PS1 named CODA—Caroline O’Donnell of Ithaca, New York—as the Young Architects Program (YAP) winner from among five finalists. In its 14th year, the program offers emerging architectural talent opportunities to design and present innovative projects for a temporary, outdoor installation at MoMA PS1 that provides shade, seating, and water. Submitting architects must also work within environmental guidelines, including sustainability and recycling.

CODA’s Party Wall will be installed for the 2013 Warm Up summer music series in MoMA PS1’s outdoor courtyard. Party Wall is a flexible, experimental pavilion that uses its large-scale form of recycled materials to provide shade for the Warm Up crowds. Tall, slender volumes envelope the courtyard’s existing walls and define new boundaries that interlace Party Wall’s different functions.

“CODA’s proposal was selected because of its clever identification and use of locally available resources—the waste products of skateboard-making—to make an impactful and poetic architectural statement within MoMA PS1’s courtyard,” says Pedro Gadanho, curator in MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design.  “Party Wall arches over the various available spaces, activating them for different purposes, while making evident that even the most unexpected materials can always be reinvented to originate architectural form and its ability to communicate with the public.”
