Hy-Fi by David Benjamin of The Living has been chosen by MoMA PS1 as the winner of the 2014 Young Architects Program. Although it might look like a futuristic power plant at first glance with its cluster of three cylindrical towers, it is in fact a temporary pavilion that will be open in late June. But what makes it even more impressive is the fact that it will be made up of self-assembling bricks.
Made up of two types of bricks, Hy-Fi by David Benjamin will essentially grow over a short period of time. The first kind of brick is made out of bio-materials including corn husks and mycelium, a kind of mushroom root material. The second is a reflective brick placed at the top to bounce sunlight down to the organic material below.
