Party Wall by CODA, winner of the 2013 Young Architects Program.

Fake Industries Architectural Agonism (NYC), Collective-LOK (Cambridge, NYC), LAMAS (Ann Arbor, Toronto), Pita + Bloom (L.A.), and The Living (NYC) have just been shortlisted for MoMA PS1’s 2014 Young Architects Program. The five emerging firms will compete to design a temporary urban landscape inside the PS1 courtyard in Long Island, Queens, where the winning construction will serve as a setting for the museum’s annual summertime Warm Up concert series.

Several past winners of the Young Architects Program have gone on to achieve critical and commercial success (though not always both), amongst them SHoP Architects (2000), nARCHITECTS (2004), MOS (2009), and SO-IL (2010). MoMA architecture and design curator Pedro Gadanho will announce next year’s winner in early 2014.
