Rising Currents: Projects for NY's Waterfront

Monday, Aug 9, 2010

Through Aug. 9. Don't miss it! MoMA and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center joined forces to address one of the most urgent challenges facing the nation's largest city: sea-level rise resulting from global climate change. Though the national debate on infrastructure is currently focused on "shovel-ready" projects that will stimulate the economy, we now have an important opportunity to foster new research and fresh thinking about the use of New York City's harbor and coastline. As in past economic recessions, construction has slowed dramatically in New York, and much of the city's remarkable pool of architectural talent is available to focus on innovation.

An architects-in-residence program at P.S.1 brought together five interdisciplinary teams, including Architecture Research Office (ARO), to re-envision the coastlines of New York and New Jersey around New York Harbor and to imagine new ways to occupy the harbor itself with adaptive "soft" infrastructures that are sympathetic to the needs of a sound ecology. These creative solutions are intended to dramatically change our relationship to one of the city's great open spaces.

Dates: March 24 – August 9, 2010

Location: Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, Architecture and Design Galleries, 3rd Floor
