Hernan Diaz Alonso's Critical Architecture

Architect Hernan Diaz Alonso draws his inspiration from science fiction, cartoons, and the darker side of alternate worlds.

Hernan Diaz Alonso's winning proposal for this year's MoMA/P.S. 1's Young Architect Program is a skeletal pavilion whose shape is influenced by science fiction and surrealism. We visit with the architect as he readies the structure for its June 26 debut.
