Architectural monument made of bricks grown from corn stalks

This tubular architectural monument design has won the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program for 2014 and will be exhibited on site at the Museum of Modern Art’s PS1 building. New York architecture firm The Living proposed the winning sculpture, titled ‘Hy-Fi.’ The structure will be made of organic bricks grown from corn stalks and other root systems.

The bricks are grown in reflective trays, which will be incorporated into the final design. The combination of the metal trays and style of the form will create a dynamic experience for museum visitors. David Benjamin of The Living explains, “The exhibit will offer otherworldly experiences of light, views, enclosure and micro-climates. It will also point to a future with a healthy approach to waste, energy, and carbon.”
