YAP Istanbul Modern: Young Architects Program - Istanbul Modern


June - October 2013

Istanbul Modern initiates YAP Istanbul Modern: Young Architects Program in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA / MoMA PS1. The program will be held biannually during the summer and offer young emerging architects the opportunity to design a temporary architectural installation in ?stanbul Modern’s courtyard. YAP Istanbul Modern is an expansion of the YAP International architects programs carried out at MoMA / MoMA PS1 in New York, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome, and the CONSTRUCTO in Santiago.

The YAP: Young Architects Program offers designers and architects the opportunity to create spaces that promote diverse uses such as rest, play, and relaxation as well as hosting a series of live events. Architects are encouraged to address environmental issues, such as sustainability and recycling, to create innovative projects providing elements such as shade, water, and seating that increase the use of open-air spaces. Throughout the summer of 2013, the temporary installation built in Istanbul Modern’s courtyard will be used by museum visitors of all ages and will host museum activities especially addressing the young audience.

Designed by SO? Architecture and Ideas, the project entitled Sky Spotting Stop will be built in early June in Istanbul Modern’s courtyard. It will host special events addressing especially the young audienceand can be used throughout the summer of 2013 by museum visitors of all ages. In addition to the winner, the designs proposed by all the finalists of the YAP International programs will be exhibited atIstanbul Modern, MoMA PS1, MAXXI, and CONSTRUCTO.

Sky Spotting Stop is a temporary site-specific installation that shades the courtyard of Istanbul Modern while floating gently on the hidden waters of the Bosphorus, projecting its host space upon the city. Istanbul Modern’s courtyard is partly isolated from urban flow despite its very central location; thanks to this ephemeral, albeit lively addition, which will serve as an intriguing spot for the museum’s exterior, the courtyard will become part of the skyline. While the illuminated mirror plates create a constantly changing background for events at night, they provide undulating shadows during the day. On the ground, an altering landscape made of mobile reused elements transforms the courtyard into a new stop in the city for sitting, resting, gathering, playing, or “sky-spotting.”
