MoMA PS1 YAP 2014 Runner-Up: Underberg / LAMAS

"The world under the ice unfolds as a kind of magical urbanism. The edges of blocks drip as if they are melting, creating spaces like rooms with rain instead of walls. A barrel vault ceiling directs the party straight to the stage and the museum. A glacial lake forms under the vault of a large rotunda. Throughout the walls of the streets an intricate series of marble patterns acts as a kind of instinctual wayfinding for its citizens."
