YAP MAXXI is the programme that promotes and supports young architecture, organized by MAXXI in collaboration with MoMA/MoMA PS1 of New York, Constructo in Santiago, Chile, Istanbul Modern (Turkey) and for the first time MMCA National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Seoul (Korea).
Every year an young architecture studio presents an installation hosting summer events and offering the public of the museum an area for relaxation.

An international jury has chosen, from a shortlist of five finalists, the winning project for YAP MAXXI 2014, the fourth edition of the competition: the installation 8½ by the Rome-based studio orizzontale: a wall eight and a half metres high, a portable theatre, a machine for inhabiting the public space that will accompany visitors from June and throughout the summer period.

The exhibition features the models of the other four short-listed projects from the Italian edition. It also presents the entire YAP - Young Architects Program 2014 through images of the winning and short-listed projects from MoMA/MoMA PS1, MMCA and Costructo accompanied by statements from the respective organizers and curators, offering visitors the possibility to compare the different approaches to the theme from the four corners of the globe.
