The Young Architects Program International offers young designers and architects the opportunity to design spaces that promote uses such as rest, play, and relaxation as well as host diverse events such as shows, music, dance, exhibitions, and performances. Architects are encouraged to address environmental issues such as sustainability and recycling and to create innovative projects providing elements such as shade, water, and seating that increase the possibilities of use in open-air spaces.
Within the scope of the project, the temporary installation built in Istanbul Modern’s courtyard throughout the summer of 2013 will be used by museum visitors of all ages and will host museum activities addressing especially the young audience.
The designs proposed by the finalists will be assessed by the jury in February 2013. One of these proposals will be selected and launched in Istanbul Modern’s courtyard in June 2013, concurrently with the designs of theYoung Architects Program International at MoMA PS1 and MAXXI. In addition to their respective winners, allYoung Architects Program International locations will feature an exhibition showcasing the designs proposed by finalists of the 2013 summer program.
