I'm thrilled to see Interboro Partners' "Holding Pattern" has been named as the winning submission for MoMA PS1's Young Architects Program. It will be installed in MoMA PS1's courtyard in Summer 2011.
Taken from their website,
"Holding Pattern" reveals this situation by stringing ropes from holes in MoMA PS1's concrete wall to the parapet across the courtyard. In the same way that Hugh Ferris reveals the potential of New York City's 1916 zoning code by drawing the theoretical building envelope, we reveal the very odd, idiosyncratic space of the courtyard and simultaneously create an inexpensive and column-free space for the activity below. From the ground, the experience is of a soaring hyperboloid surface.
