It's still the middle of January, but it's time to start thinking about summer?MoMA just announced the 2013 winner of its annual PS1 Young Architects Program. Created by CODA, the pavilion, called "Party Wall," is a large-scale "flexible experimental space" made from reclaimed wood and a steel frame. The wood is waste from a skateboard manufacturer, and the steel frame balances over giant fabric pillows filled with water. Cooling pools sit below the pavilion and a steady stream of water sprays from the top. The lower 120 pieces of facade can be detached to be used as additional seating and communal tables for events. Party Wall will host PS1's Summer Warm Up concerts, and it will debut in late June.
