NYC | ‘Pedro & Juana’ wins 2019 YAP (Young Architects Program) by MoMA PS1
The project Hórama Rama by Pedro & Juana has been named the winning design of the The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1’s 20th annual Young Architects Program.
Opening in June 2019, this year’s architectural installation is an immersive junglescape set within a large-scale cyclorama that sits atop MoMA PS1’s courtyard walls.
Selected from among five finalists, Hórama Rama will be on view through the summer, serving as a temporary built environment for MoMA PS1’s pioneering outdoor music series Warm Up.
For 20 years, the Young Architects Program at The Museum of Modern Art and 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 and sustainable outdoor installation that provides shade, seating, and water.
The architects must also work within environmentally sensitive guidelines.
Pedro&Juana is a studio from Mexico City founded by Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss. Link to the website.
The 2019 Young Architects Program is sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
Major support is provided by Allianz, MoMA’s partner for design and innovation.
