Architect Caroline O’Donnell—of Ithaca, NY–based experimental design and research studio CODA—is the winner of MoMA PS1′s 2013 Young Architects Program. Her design, Party Wall, will provide shade and succor to the crowds of outdoor art enthusiasts who gather for PS1′s summer Warm-Up series.
Riffing on the idea of a party (or shared) wall, O’Donnell’s design calls for a vertical shade that defines space with the shadows it casts. The steel structure is clad with a porous facade made from the castoffs of eco-friendly skateboard manufacturer Comet.
At the base of Party Wall, a sequence of pools will be filled by a gravity-operated fountain. A shallow stage will line the perimeter of the wall, forming several microstages that open onto PS1′s courtyards and the dance floor.
