CODA's winning proposal calls for a large wall clad in scrap wood from the skateboard-making process.

Ithaca, New York-based firm CODA has won this year's competition to design a temporary installation for P.S.1, the Museum of Modern Art-affiliated contemporary art space in New York City. In the proposal, the firm (helmed by Caroline O'Donnell) calls for erecting a large wall clad in panels made from scrap wood cast-off during the skateboard-making process. Woven together, they will hang on an armature that straddles the former school building's courtyard. A series of archways will create shaded spaces below.

Punningly titled "Party Wall," the project will open in June and provide the backdrop for P.S.1's Warm-Up summer music series.
