"Wendy by HWKN"

0 Love It

Taking up residence in MoMA PS1's two courtyards this summer is a visitor named Wendy. Lest your kids envision a reincarnation of the Peter Pan character, let them know that this Wendy is someone/something even more kidtastic: an enormous, mega-pointy 3-D star made of blue fabric that's supported by an equally large scaffolding. Designed by HWKN (Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner), the winners of this year's New Architects Program, Wendy is climbable and comes equipped with water features including spray showers to cool families off all summer. Coolest of all, though, is that the coating of the material the sculpture is made of works to bind and eliminate CO2 from the air, such that Wendy's presence is akin to removing the emissions of 260 vehicles from the surrounding environment. All ages.
