For the past seven years, the P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center's "Warm Up" summer series has transformed the museum's courtyard into a vast array of canopies, waterworks, sandboxes, and otherwise out-of-place (at least in the heart of Queens) party spaces for drinking and dancing on warm Saturday afternoons.

But this year's winning design aims to showcase an even greater urban irony: a good old fashioned farm. The proposal by husband-and-wife team Dan Wood and Amale Andraos is so curiously tangent to past entries (Chief Curator Barry Bergdoll even called the selection "almost in counterpoint to the program"), that the museum had to give it a go.

From June to September: the same dancing and the same drinking-plus some greens thrown in to balance out the barley.
