Caroline O’Donnell Wins Competition to Design MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program Pavilion

Published: Monday, February 04, 2013

Irish-born architect Caroline O’Donnell, who won the Europan11 Competition for a site in the Dublin Docklands, has recently succeeded with her Ithaca (NY) practice CODA in MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program. Now in its 14th edition, the Young Architects Program is committed to offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop creative designs for a temporary, outdoor installation at MoMA PS1 that provides shade, seating, and water.

Opening at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City in late June, the winning design ‘Party Wall’ is a pavilion and flexible experimental space that uses its large-scale, linear form to provide shade for the Warm Up crowds, in addition to other functions. “CODA’s proposal was selected from five finalists because of its clever identification and use of locally available resources – the waste products of skateboard-making – to make an impactful and poetic architectural statement within MoMA PS1′s courtyard,” said Pedro Gadanho, Curator in MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design. “Party Wall arches over the various available spaces, activating them for different purposes, while making evident that even the most unexpected materials can always be reinvented to originate architectural form and its ability to communicate with the public.”
