Afterparty by MOS






This year's visit at MoMA's P.S.1 wasn't as exciting as last year's (seeing Olafur Eliasson’s retrospective, especially in that context).
We entered into nearly empty gallery with only one exhibition worth seeing, celebrating the tenth year of the Young Architects Program. This year’s winner of the 2009 MoMA/P.S.1 Program was MOS an interdisciplinary practice engaging in architecture and design, based in Massachusetts.
Their installation Afterparty (widely published), is to serve as a “cooling escape” and “urban shelter” at the heart of P.S.1's Warm Up music series.
Here are few photographs I took of this tent -like "chimneys" that made me feel uncomfortable at times, probably because of that dark skin and hair...
