PS1 ENTRY FREELAND BUCK
MoMA PS1 announced the 2018 selection for its annual Young Architects Program which invites emerging architectural talent to envision and realize a temporary summer outdoor installation inside the institution's courtyard.
While the selection ultimately fell on Minneapolis-based team Dream the Combine , four other proposals had also made it into the circle of finalists back in November including, designed by A.UD alumni including BairBalliet, and FreelandBuck . Here Archinect takes a look at FreelandBuck's (David Freeland and Brennan Buck both (M.Arch.I '04) MoMA PS1 YAP finalist entry Out of the Picture.
Project description from the architects: "FreelandBuck's proposal, Out of the Picture, emerges from images. It’s a physical space for being together, but it is made to be translated into other, virtual formats. It borrows the language of images (graphic density, saturation, illusion, legibility) and translates it back into something physical. Visitors enter a world of imagery, where everything is somehow recognizable but a bit out of focus and low resolution."

"The proposal brings the streetscapes of Long Island City into the PS1 courtyard, both literally and scenographically. Objects from the street (stoops, benches, mailboxes, fire hydrants) invade the courtyard while its bounding walls host views outward, onto the city. A canopy, woven from the same scenes, extends overhead, casting recognizable shadows.
