P.S. 1 Architecture Competition Runners-Up Blow Up the Party

New, 9 comments

[Renderings: Bade Stageberg Cox]

If you thought the winning entry in P.S. 1's annual courtyard design competition?the recession victims VIP room?was cool, you're going to love this runner-up finalist. Blow Up by Bade Stageberg Cox consists of a series of mushed together donut-shaped inflatable mushroom clouds that create one tripped-out museum courtyard, dude. Bonus: blow-up swimming pools for all the Long Island City bikini-clad folk looking for a place to cool off after Water Taxi Beach. Created with a minimal of material (the proposal loads onto a pick-up truck), it only needs some wind power from upstate to inflate. Add water for instant party! Archigram would be proud.
