We’re so excited to see CODA’s winning YAP design come to life in our courtyard this summer. “Party Wall” has some pretty big shoes (uh, spikes?) to fill, remember the big blue star “Wendy”?

‘Wendy’ Installation by HWKN for PS1’s Young Architects Program Summer 2012. The structure is based on a grid-like scaffolding system with stretched nylon fabric treated with titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants.  Formally iconic and ecological responsive, this project questions site specificity while suggesting new forms of infrastructural performance.
