Rising Currents at MoMA

Organized by MoMA and PS 1 Contemporary Art Center, the Rising Currents exhibit cannot be missed by architects, ecologists, or green enthusiasts…let alone any New Yorker.   The exhibit is a cohesive showcase of five projects which tackle the lingering truth that within a few years, the waterfront of the New York harbor will drastically change.  Dealing with large scale issues of climate change, the architects delve into a specific scale that we can recognize and relate to.  The projects are not meant to be viewed as a master plan, but rather each individual zone serves as a test site for the team to experiment.   The projects demonstrate the architects’ abilities to look passed the idea of climate change as a problem, and move on to see the opportunities it presents.  Barry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA,  explained, “Your mission is to come up with images that are so compelling they can’t be forgotten and so realistic that they can’t be dismissed.”

More about each zone after the break.
