    The interboro image uses an unmentioned image from a pavilion in an Austrian park, published years ago. I have to find the authors but it is a clear case of copy.

    @fabrizio – proof?

  3. Chris says:

    It is a project by Austrian architect Hans Petr Worndl. Circa 1995.

    All pretty bog standard, except for the IJP and Formless Finder entries. The last one looks awesome! Is that a bag of cement?

    How does MOMA PS1 select their finalist? Bunch of curators, deans, department heads, ‘someone important’ nominates their friends, nephews, etc? If MOMA PS1 really wants inclusiveness and diversity, they should have an open call design competition. Get off the high horse.

    Formal architecture!! Too bad for the uncritical Moma anual follie!

  9. Matt says:

    Forms and not thinking! Is that MOMA’s statement! too bad for an institution that keeps thinking architecture is uncritical!
