In an effort to foster the creative debate on urban recovery after Hurricane Sandy, MoMA PS1 and MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design initiated a call for ideas to create a sustainable waterfront.
Artists, architects, designers, and others were welcome to present ideas for alternative housing models, creation of social spaces, urban interventions, new uses of public space, the rebuilding of the boardwalk, protection of the shoreline, and actions to engage local communities.
Twenty-five proposals were selected to be presented publicly by MoMA PS1 in its temporary relief and cultural center, the VW Dome 2 in Rockaway Beach. They will be continuously on view until June 30, 2013.
A jury including curators Barry Bergdoll, Klaus Biesenbach, Peter Eleey, Pedro Gadanho, Niklas Maak, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and other influential architects, urban planners, and designers made the selection from the open call.
