Caroline O´Donnell, jury member of «Structures of Freedom»

Today we want to present Caroline O’Donnell, principal of CODA and jury member of “Structures of Freedom”, the competition launched by Archtalent in partnership with Sziget, one of the largest music and cultural festivals in the world.

CODA is a New York city based office, best known perhaps for winning the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program with “Party Wall” which was built at PS1 in 2013, and for two prize winning Europan housing schemes. CODA‘s work ranges in scale from the object and installation to the urban, and focuses on responsive, dynamic architectures, the misuse of materials, and the manipulation of perceptions.
