Join the AIANY Interiors Committee for a private tour of MoMA PS1’s Young Architect’s Program (YAP) temporary outdoor installation by Jenny Sabin Studio. Jenny Sabin’s installation is an immersive design that evolves over the course of a day, providing a cooling respite from the midday sun and a responsive glowing light after sundown. Opening on June 29 and on view through the summer, this year’s construction will serve as a temporary urban landscape for the 20th season of Warm Up, the museum’s pioneering outdoor music series. Made of responsive tubular structures in a lightweight knitted fabric, Lumen features a canopy of recycled, photo-luminescent, and solar active textiles that absorb, collect, and deliver light. A misting system responds to visitors’ proximity, activating fabric stalactites that produce a refreshing micro-climate. Socially and environmentally responsive, Lumen’s multisensory environment is inspired by collective levity, play, and interaction as the structure and materials transform throughout the day and night, adapting to the densities of bodies, heat, and sunlight.
Now in its 18th edition, the Young Architects Program at MoMA PS1 has offered emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop creative designs for a temporary, outdoor installation that provides shade, seating, and water. The architects must also work within guidelines that address environmental issues, including sustainability and recycling.
The tour will be led by Jenny Sabin and Sean Anderson of MoMA.Buy tickets/get more info now
