On Saturday, MoMA PS1 inaugurated its annual series of Warm Up dance parties in Queens. Record temperatures did not deter revelers from enjoying D.J. sets by the likes of Todd Terry, Light Asylum, and Nguzunguzu. Each year, the museum awards a young architect or firm the chance to create an installation that provides the event with shade, seating, and hydration. This summer's winner, called Wendy and created by the HWKN, was a beautiful blue origami-like structure made of nylon, which emitted cool blasts of air and mist. We sent photographer Thomas Prior to capture some of the partygoers. Click through our slideshow for purple flattops, intricately patterned jumpsuits, hot pink kaftans, and more. And if you find yourself in New York City between now and September 8, drop by MoMA PS1 to see it all in person.
