June 28 Opening Day Celebration: Young Architects Program 2009
Sunday, June 28, 2009
12:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the Young Architects Program, P.S.1 and The Museum of Modern Art present Afterparty, an interactive environment designed by MOS principals Hilary Sample and Michael Meredith. Afterparty will serve as a cooling “urban shelter” in the heart of P.S.1’s courtyard with towering hut-like structures providing shade similar to that of a Bedouin tent. The dark textile will create its own microclimate shielding visitors from the summer heat while cool air from the thermal mass of the courtyard's shaded concrete walls and water troughs located in the center of the installation will be drawn up through a series of cooling chimneys by induction. This will create a breeze and a "cool down" refuge for the kinetic Warm Up crowd.
Join us for this very special opening day!
