MoMA's P.S. 1 Young Architect's Competition

The ground breaking nature of MoMA's P.S. 1 Museum of Contemporary Art in Long island City, NY, continues through its Young Architect's Competition, now in its eight year. The competition asks for proposals for a temporary structure for the museum's summer music program, Warm-Up. Here is the description of the winning proposal and its young architects posted in World Architectural News. We like the proposal because of, among other things, the novel "green roof." Besides being a living structure, it is also made of inexpensive and sustainable materials that are recyclable after its use at P.S.1.
