What Makes Wendy Work
Part 1: Science Fair
Sunday, July 15, 2012
2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
HWKN, the winner of this year’s Young Architects Program, will offer a two-part panel series at MoMA PS1 on July 15 and August 5 for the public to gain a deeper understanding of Wendy.
PART 1: Science Fair
July 15 · 2-4 PM
How can a pile of scaffolding and fabric be the Next Big Thing in developing scientifically advanced building? Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner (principals, HWKN) moderate a panel discussion exploring how Wendy "scrubs" the air, keeps museum-goers cool, and effectively creates her own microclimate. Panelists include the people behind the elements that created her: the scientists that developed the titania nanotechnology, the engineers that created her wind-generating fans, and experts in the field of climate engineering.
