Istanbul Modern to support emerging
Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 are embarking on a new partnership that will expand the international Young Architects Program (YAP) to Turkey. YAP Istanbul Modern will provide opportunities for emerging architects in Turkey to create temporary exterior installations to serve as biennial architectural landscapes for summer programming at the Istanbul Modern. YAP Istanbul Modern joins the YAP International programs at MoMA PS1 in New York, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome, and at the cultural organization CONSTRUCTO in Santiago, Chile.
YAP offers selected young designers and architects the opportunity to create designs that promote diverse uses such as rest, play, and relaxation. YAP will also host a series of events such as shows, music, dance, exhibitions, and performances. In addition architects are encouraged to address environmental issues, including sustainability and recycling, to create highly innovative projects that provide shade, seating, and water.
