“COSMO” has officially brought the party to MoMA PS1.

The winning project of MoMA PS1’s 16th Young Architects Program (YAP) is now open for public viewing in the museum affiliate’s courtyard. “COSMO: Give me a pipe and I will move/celebrate the Earth,” which was designed by Andrés Jaque/Office for Political Innovation, is a moveable artifact made from customized irrigation components that puts out an effort to make visible–and enjoyable–the hidden urbanism of the water pipes we live by. We stopped by the courtyard earlier today as “COSMO” got its finishing touches, and we must say, this installation looks as incredible as its renderings.

MoMA PS1 has just announced the winning design for this year’s Young Architects Program (YAP), which will be featured this summer in the Long Island City museum’s outdoor courtyard, setting the stage for the Warm Up summer music series. The top spot goes to Andrés Jaque of the Office for Political Innovation for COSMO: Give me a pipe and I will move/celebrate the Earth, a moveable environmental artifact made out of customized irrigation components that will make visible and enjoyable the typically hidden urbanism of pipes.

According to MoMA PS1, COSMO “is engineered to filter and purify 3,000 gallons of water, eliminating suspended particles and nitrates, balancing the PH, and increasing the level of dissolved oxygen. It takes four days for the 3,000 gallons of water to become purified, then the cycle continues with the same body of water, becoming more purified with every cycle.”
