MoMA Young Architects Program 2015




DATES: June 26–September 7, 2015


This exhibition features the five finalists’ proposals from the MoMA/MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program (YAP), and the five finalists from each of our affiliated programs—in Rome at the National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI), in Santiago, Chile (CONSTRUCTO), in Istanbul, Turkey (Istanbul Modern) and in Seoul, Korea (MMCA). Now in its 16th edition, the Young Architects Program at MoMA PS1 offers emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present creative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop highly innovative 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.

Organized by Pedro Gadanho, Curator, and Leah Barreras, Department Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.
