Wendy does not play the typical architecture game of ecological apology – instead she is pro-active. That is why Wendy is composed of PVC mesh treated with a ground breaking titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants. During the summer of 2012 Wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road.
The courtyard at MoMA PS1 will be activated by tools like shade, wind, rain, music, and visual identity to reach beyond her envelope. Wendy’s spiky arms reach out with micro-programs like blasts of cool air, music, water canons and mists to create social zones throughout the courtyard.
Come visit Wendy in the courtyard of MoMA Ps1 this summer!
