Faculty member Dan D'Oca, who teaches in the Art History, Theory & Criticism Department at MICA, focusing on architectural theory and the theory of an "open city," is among the partners at New York-based Interboro, which won the MoMA PS1's 2011 Young Architects Program competition.
Interboro Partners, a 9-year-old architecture firm, has won the annual competition with a concept called "Holding Pattern" that will transform MoMA PS1's courtyard for its summer outdoor music program. According to an article in Artforum, the architects took their inspiration from the community around the museum, which is located in Long Island City, Queens, interviewing the proprietors of local businesses and nonprofits about what materials might be of use to them and then incorporating those materials into their design, with the intention of donating them at the end of the summer.
