Weaving the Courtyard installation by Escobedo Solíz Studio, New York City

June 15th, 2016 by retail design blog

The colorful Weaving the Courtyard, Escobedo Solíz Studio’s winning design in MoMA PS1’s 17th annual Young Architects Program (YAP), recently opened to the public in Long Island City, Queens. Escobedo Solíz Studio from Mexico City won the competition in February with a literal weaving of colorful ropes anchored to the holes of the concrete walls that form the courtyard of the art institution.

As built, the installation is made up of groups of red and green strands that alternatively extend from high to low across the triangular courtyard, criss-crossing in the middle. Below these woven strands are a large sandbox and some blue tarps that offer the shade the ropes do not. To cool down the summer revelers, two smaller courtyards feature a wading pool and mist nozzles, the latter fitted into the holes of the concrete walls like the ropes. Weaving the Courtyard will remain in place all summer, serving as a backdrop for the institution’s popular Warm-Up concert series.
