Former Muschenheim Fellow Michael Meredith wins P.S. 1 Young Architects Competition
Michael Meredith, a former Muschenheim Fellow, recently won the P.S. 1 Young Architects Competition. According to the New York Times, Meredith and wife and partner Hilary Sample described their winning installation as "'a temporary urban shelter and passive cooling station' for the events at the Warm Up summer program at P.S. 1, which includes concerts and outdoor dancing. Air cooled by the courtyard's existing shaded concrete walls and concrete water troughs will be drawn up through the chimneys by induction, they said, creating a breeze. The courtyard installation is to open to the public in late June." For more information, visit their website mos-office.net.
