Pedro & Juana builds spiky "junglescape" in MoMA PS1 courtyard | Construction Buzz #225

Thousands of wooden spikes cover scaffolding to form this pavilion that Mexico City studio Pedro & Juana has built to host the MoMA PS1's summer music series.

Pedro & Juana, a Mexican design studio founded by Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss, designed the temporary structure to host the museum's Warm Up music series this summer.

Described by the museum as "immersive junglescape", it comprises a rounded scaffolding structure that spans 40 feet high (12 metres) high and nearly 90 feet (27 metres) wide.

Wooden boards extend out from different levels to create a spiky exterior. Each of the tips of the thousands of boards is coloured blue to match the hue of the sky.

Inside, the walls are covered in a printed screen to create a cyclorama of a jungle. The pavilion is then completed by a waterfall, wooden stools and bright pink hammocks that were made in the south of Mexico.

The design is the winner of this year's Young Architects Program (YAP), an annual competition held by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and MoMA PS1. Each year, the museum selects a design from an emerging studio to overhaul the museum's courtyard.

Horama Rama by Pedro & Juana

Hórama Rama forms the latest in a series of diverse installations that have been built in the courtyard over the years.

Previous designs have included pivoting mirrors and an elevated runway, a web of brightly hued rope and a cluster of circular towers built from bricks grown from corn stalks and mushrooms.

Hórama Rama will be open to the public from 6 July to 2 September,  MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City.
