This year’s winner of the MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, Wendy is an innovative project that engages the current ecological problems at hand which face the field of architecture and beyond, ¿beyond? Ok. The project have a great idea however the aspect more interesting on this project is the material (an idea by Helen Storey y Tony Ryanan) for this reason, the question is clear, is the project, a good project?

Of course, Wendy increases the fabric surface area and increase the quality of air in the neighborhood (in comparation with jeans by Helen Storey), ie it is a big filter, the equivalent of removing 260 cars off the highway, but is it enough? to talk about architecture.

Time ago, some project were launched and they were acclaimed only because were bristling with mechanisms, in theory, ecological elements, however they never were sustainable buildings.
