Under the canopy, Interboro created sitting areas, and used things like mirrors, flood lights and ping-pong tables to create an interactive space for for Warm Up attendees. The seating will be split between a senior citizens center and the Checker Management offices. The mirrors will be given to the Long Island City Ballet School, the flood lights will go to the NYC Irish Center, and the ping pong tables are for Info Tech High School.
Interboro Partners worked with more than 15 different community groups to create the final design. On their website, they say, “We never would have thought to include [these items], but [they] both enhance the Warm Up’s program, and strengthen MoMA PS1′s ties to its neighborhood.
