Virtual Water in Queens, New York by UrbanLab with endrestudio + Method Design

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Article source: UrbanLab with endrestudio + Method Design

Virtual Water formally manifests what is hidden in plain sight: RAIN. The project reveals and plays with thousands of gallons of summertime rainwater that would otherwise be discarded from the PS1 courtyard.

Virtual Water refers to water hidden in everyday products. A pair of jeans, for example, has a 3000 gallon Virtual Water footprint because 3000 gallons of water are consumed in the various steps of its production chain (growing the cotton, dyeing the fabric, etc).

The new CAC building will provide spaces for temporary exhibitions, site-specific installations, and performances, but not for a permanent collection. Other program elements include an education facility, offices, art preparation areas, a museum store, a cafe and public areas. To draw in pedestrian movement from the surrounding areas and create a sense of dynamic public space, the entrance, lobby and lead-in to the circulation system are organized as an “Urban Carpet.”

Its entrance sequence requires one to circulate along a raised stone planter wall that acts as a landscaped transition from the exterior to the interior of the house.  The entryway occurs at the juncture of the two wings of an L-shaped plan.  One enters into the taller, one-and-a-half storey public living area wing, an open loft space containing the kitchen, dining and living space. The smaller private wing consists of three bedrooms.
