Five finalists have been announced for MoMA PS1’s annual Young Architects Program, which commissions one emerging firm to design a structure for the museum’s summer season of concerts in its Long Island City courtyard. Selected by Pedro Gadanho, Associate Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, the finalists will now be asked to submit design proposals for next summer’s canopy. The firms are Toronto-based Studio Benjamin Dillenburger, the Bittertang Farm from New York, Erin Besler of Los Angeles, Miami’s brillhart architecture, and Andres Jacque/Office of Political Innovation of Madrid and New York. This 2015 edition of the Young Architects Program, the initiative’s 15th consecutive year, was won by David Benjamin of The Living. The winning project, “Hi-Fy,” was formed by three interlocked conical towers made from bricks produced exclusively from organic materials.
