Every year, MoMA PS1 celebrates the talents of a Young Architect through the design of temporary pavilion in their outdoor courtyard. This year, we have learned that one of the finalists comes from our very own hometown in Jacob Brillhart of Brillhart Architects. For those that don’t know, or don’t remember, Brillhart was the first winner of our own Design/Build Competition back in 2013, partnered with Clavel Arquitectos and Manuel Clavel (photos below)
Currently, he splits time between his own practice and academia as an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture. He has received various awards in the community, most recently the AIA Miami chapter named him Young Architect of the Year. We wish Jacob and his team the best of luck in this competition. Below is a release from Bustler regarding MoMA PS1 2015 and the links to all the finalists.
