MoMA P.S.1

As a pioneering adaptive-reuse art space, MoMA P.S.1 is a hub of innovative activity with an international reputation. Working with P.S.1, City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs, Department of General Services, and Arts Commission—along with community and arts stakeholders—FFP developed a master plan and program to transform the century-old former public school building. Other services included site planning, design, construction document coordination, and construction observation, which included a phasing plan to accommodate city funding priorities for the institution. The design maintains the texture of the historic building in various art spaces and upgrades the facility with new construction. Settings for innovative shows, performances, education, studios, installations, and community gatherings support P.S.1’s mission to act as “a catalyst and an advocate for new ideas, discourses, and trends in contemporary art.”
