Urban shelter: Afterparty

The first of two posts today featuring designs by MOS, 'Afterparty' pictured above and designed by Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample was the winner of this year's MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program. MOS call it an "urban shelter" which features various soaring hut-like chimneys-like structures. The shade inside is meant to be the urban counterpart to a Bedouin tent and the whole thing has been cleverly designed so as to encourage a gentle breeze. Perfect for some mobile shedworking. More technical details and photos at the P.S.1. site.
