P.F.1 AUTUMN HARVEST 09.30.08
PopRally welcomes the fall season with an Autumn Harvest, unfolding under the canopy of P.F.1 (Public Farm One), the winning installation in this year's MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program.

P.F.1's "urban garden" supports over fifty varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers–and special guest chef Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern will use this summer yield to prepare appetizers for a down-on-the-farm cocktail hour. Sip wine specifically chosen by the chef to complement his hors d'oeuvres, dance to the melodies of David Bruno, and enjoy a celebration of greenery and urban innovation.

Leaving behind the urban beach of previous years, P.F.1 embraces the idea of an urban farm: a plot of rural delights in the heart of the city. As a symbol of liberation, knowledge, and fun for today's cities, P.F.1 resonates with hopes for a sustainable future. Constructed entirely from large cardboard tubes and incorporating solar power and rainwater harvesting, the structure creates a textured, colorful, and constantly changing environment for the P.S.1 courtyard.
