MoMA’s Young Architects Program expands to Turkey

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) announced it is partnering with the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art on a new international Young Architects Program (YAP). The announcement further expands the reach of MoMA/MoMA PS1’s YAP to Turkey.

YAP Istanbul will provide opportunities to emerging architects in Turkey to create temporary exterior installations to serve as biennial architectural landscapes for summer programming at the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art. YAP Istanbul joins the annual YAP international programs at MoMA PS1 in New York, the National Museum of XX1 Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome, and the cultural organization CONSTRUCTO in Santiago, Chile.

The inaugural YAP Istanbul installation - chosen from five finalists by a team of representatives from both Museums as well as representatives from the other YAP International programs - will open in June 2013, coinciding with the openings of YAP at MoMA PS1 and YAP MAXXI. In addition to their respective winning designs, each YAP International location will feature an exhibition showcasing the proposed designs from all of the finalists within the YAP International program during the summer of 2013.

Barry Bergdoll, The Philip Johnson Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, called the program: “a new model of exhibition that recognizes local talent bases [and] recognises the vibrancy of the architecture and design worlds in Turkey.”
