After winning the 2014 edition of the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program competition back in February, "Hy-Fi" will finally make its summer debut on June 26! Designed by David Benjamin of New York firm The Living, Hy-Fi is a temporary outdoor installation that's completely made of reflective, organic materials engineered through bio-technology methods.
More details below.
"Using biological technologies combined with cutting-edge computation and engineering to create new building materials, The Living will use a new method of bio-design, resulting in a structure that is 100% organic material. The structure temporarily diverts the natural carbon cycle to produce a building that grows out of nothing but earth and returns to nothing but earth—with almost no waste, no energy needs, and no carbon emissions. This approach offers a new vision for society’s approach to physical objects and the built environment. It also offers a new definition of local materials, and a direct relationship to New York state agriculture and innovation culture, New York City artists and non-profits, and Queens community gardens."
The opening reception starts at 6:30 p.m. at the MoMA PS1 courtyard in Long Island City, New York. Hy-Fi will be open throughout MoMA PS1's summerlong Warm Up music fest until September 6.
