P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, an affiliate of The Museum of Modern Art, has its summer courtyard installation up and running. This year, the ninth annual MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program selected WORK Architecture Company, from New York, to transform the outdoor courtyard into a fully functional urban farm, called Public Farm One, or P.F.1. The farm will stay at P.S.1 through the month of September.

Husband and wife founders of WORK Architecture Company, Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, had a $70,000 budget to work with. The installation consists of two overhead structures made out of cardboard tubes that meet in the middle of the courtyard. The installation houses an array of vegetables, flowers, and other vegetation, and is completely solar powered.
