Ghost House

Conceptual design and model by Unlikely Creatures for IJP Corporation

Reflecting on today's shifting perceptions of domesticity and community, Ghost House sets up a series of conceptual living spaces in the courtyard MoMA PS1.  Within this intimate framework, Warmup, PS1's endless summer social, is reenvisioned as a city-scale house party.  Most of this temporary installation is made of colorful polypropylene rope: a light, yet flexible polymer commonly used in clothing and packaging.  Reclaimed, whitewashed furniture gives each room its particular character: formal tables and chairs for eating and drinking in the Dining Room, lounges for relaxing in the Living Room, and a small fleet of bathtubs for cooling off when the weather turns hot.
