每年位於紐約皇后區的 MoMA 分館 P.S.1 會舉辦一個名為 Young Architects Program(簡稱 YAP) 競圖,讓年輕的建築師有機會在執業生涯的初始階段執行較大的案子,直接於 P.S.1 中庭做出一個很屌的...空間也好,裝置也好,配合夏天開幕的派對,一大群一大群的年輕人來到派對,享受音樂、陽光與建築。

2006年贏得 YAP 的是紐約的 Obra Architects 事務所,由 Pablo Castro 與 Jennifer Lee 組成,他們的實地作品將於 2006 年7月1日開幕式當天揭曉。

Going to the Museum? Take Sunscreen and Get Ready to Dance

By ROBIN POGREBIN
Published: March 13, 2006

As all D.J.'s know, there is a maneuver called beat match that involves melding the tempo of a new tune with the one on the previous track. For two New York architects, that music-mixing technique proved the inspiration for "Beatfuse!," the winning entry in a design competition that annually transforms the courtyard at the P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, Queens.

Today, P.S. 1 and the Museum of Modern Art are to unveil that project, designed by Pablo Castro and Jennifer Lee. Their design was selected from five finalists, narrowed from among more than 25 entries.

Every summer the P.S. 1 courtyard is transformed into an outdoor party space called Warm Up. From the first weekend in July to Labor Day weekend, thousands of young people crowd the courtyard each Saturday to eat, drink and dance while a D.J. spins tunes from 3 to 9 p.m.

"We see Warm Up in Queens as this great place where similar people with similar backgrounds come together," Mr. Castro said, "a latter-day happening where everyone is an artist and the whole thing is a work of art."

Mr. Castro and Ms. Lee's design features seven connected shells — what the architects call "concertinas" — that arch over the courtyard, forming a gridded dome. The shells are made of plywood and a skin of layered fiber mesh cut into hexagons, which the architects refer to as scales. The shells, which resemble hives, will create a moiré pattern on the ground and the walls, the architects said.

To help cool the area, the design features curvilinear tidal pools and misters arranged in a circle around a light protected by metal mesh that Mr. Castro likened to a giant kitchen strainer. "At night, the water mist will create a cloud around it, like the Empire State Building when a storm is caught at the top," he said. "Constantly changing, amorphous shapes."

A radial array of wooden sunbathing chaise longues is also planned for the courtyard, along with freezer chests to be arranged as cooling benches for visitors. "Maybe they can stay a little longer," Mr. Castro said.

In the museums' six-year-old design competition, known as the Young Architects Program, the goal is "to offer architects at the beginning of their careers an opportunity to do a relatively large project that provides them with the maximum opportunity to take risks," said Glenn D. Lowry, the Modern's director, who took part in the selection.

"We loved the play of architecture and whimsy, structure and form," Mr. Lowry said, "and their ability to do this with some of the least expensive materials. It had to be an urban space that evokes the beach, where people can come and lounge around and bring small children and at the same time can dance."

Competition rules limit the budget for each project to $70,000. Mr. Castro said, "It has to be an accomplished exercise in doing the most with the least."

Terence Riley, the outgoing chief curator of architecture and design at the Modern, said he admired the couple's "ingenious use of low-tech technologies and materials to approximate a concept that is actually very much a high-tech concept." And Alanna Heiss, the director of P.S. 1, praised the design as "an extraordinarily suggestive series of undulating hills and mountains and valleys."

"You feel like you're inside an eggshell or you're in transparent golf balls," she said. "It looks from the outside like an albino python."

The other finalists in the competition were Sotamaa Architecture & Design of Columbus, Ohio; Höweler + Yoon of Boston; Gnuform of Los Angeles; and Contemporary Architecture Practice of Manhattan.

Mr. Castro, 46, and Ms. Lee, 37, who previously worked for the architect Steven Holl, started their own firm, the Manhattan-based OBRA, in 2000. Most of their projects have been low-profile ones, like a Long Island house made of concrete pavilions connected by bridges, which was a collaboration with Mr. Holl.

They have entered several competitions. In 2003 Mr. Castro and Ms. Lee submitted a design for an apartheid museum and memorial in South Africa comprising cylindrical brick cones housing 10 galleries. Although they were among the three international finalists, none of them won the commission, which went to a South African firm.

In their design for the P.S. 1 courtyard, it is clear that the architects wanted to have fun. Because their project is meant to emphasize what they call "oneness," the architects suggested that all the 1's at P.S. 1 be rendered in phosphorescent paint. They also proposed that the museum sell black-rubber animals that could float around in the pools and inflatable pillows on which people could sit.

For their presentation before the design jury, the Obra architects wore custom-made black-and-white T-shirts with the P.S. 1-MoMA logo. To bring good luck, they added, they didn't take the shirts off for a week.
