THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

Rising Currents

Projects for New York's Waterfront

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York
Edited by Barry Bergdoll. Foreword by Judith Rodin. Text by Barry Bergdoll, Michael Oppenheimer, Guy Nordenson.

In the fall of 2009, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 selected five interdisciplinary teams of architects, engineers and landscape designers to propose solutions to the effects of climate change on New York's waterfront. The resulting proposals, exhibited at MoMA in 2010 in the exhibition Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront, emphasize "soft" infrastructure interventions that would make New York City and its surrounding areas more ecologically sound and more resilient in responding to rising sea levels and storm surges. These innovative projects include the creation of salt- and freshwater wetlands, a Venice-like aqueous landscape, habitable piers and man-made islands, and a protective reef of living oysters. Published to document the exhibition, Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront presents these five projects in detail through essays that summarize the innovative workshop and exhibition, the dialogues they engendered with outside experts and political figures involved in regional planning, and the climate change and urban planning implications of the proposed solutions.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Arcitectural Record

Fred Bernstein

The whole point of Rising Currents, says Nordenson, was 'to shift the emphasis. If we accept the water is going to come, how do we manage it?'

Landscape Architecture Magazine

Jessica Lamond

Is the book's claim to be a source of material for cities with flooding problems everywhere valid? Yes, since the ideas and concepts are transferable even if the specific combination of measures adopted for each case test area is unlikely to be represented in exactly the same configuration. Although it will not provide the technical know-how to put design into practice, this book will inspire designers to be transformative in their thinking.

Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront

Rising Currents: Projects for New York's WaterfrontIn the wake of Superstorm Sandy, America is more unified in its focus on climate change than ever before. Clearly, coastal areas must make changes in order to survive and thrive. In the fall of 2009, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 selected five interdisciplinary teams of architects, engineers and landscape designers to propose solutions to the effects of climate change on New York's waterfront. The resulting proposals, exhibited at MoMA in 2010 in the exhibition Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront, emphasize "soft" infrastructure interventions that would make New York City and its surrounding areas more ecologically sound and more resilient in responding to rising sea levels and storm surges. Sample chapters from the excellent exhibition catalog are available on MoMA's website, as is a rich blog about issues related to the show.
