MoMA PS1: Bottle Service


Project icon

What can New York learn from Rwanda?

MASS’s proposal for the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, Bottle Service, captures the summer impulse to cool off by activating the senses of the subaquatic. Beneath a stream of seemingly floating and frozen forms, Bottle Service is an urban menagerie, a refracted surface, a transformative plunge unique only to a single courtyard, to a single borough, and to a single moment.

Built from all recycled and recyclable materials, Bottle Service is an architectural statement that proposes that any architecture, if choreographed well, can have lasting environmental, social, and economic impact. By establishing collaborations with groups such as the Center for Architecture Foundation, Flux Factory, the East River Development Alliance, and Emeco, MASS’s proposal for the courtyard seeks to build ownership through engagement.
