As for the Young Architects Program-selected courtyard installation, this year's piece Hórama Rama is by Mexico City-based architects Pedro and Juana. It's a 40-foot-high "cyclorama featuring jungle imagery," according to the press release, aiming to "provid[e] a refuge amid the changing Long Island City skyline."
