In an effort to foster the creative debate on urban recovery after Hurricane Sandy, MoMA PS1 and MoMA’s Department of Architecture and Design are calling out for ideas to create a sustainable waterfront.
Artists, architects, designers, and others are 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 selected proposals will be presented publicly through social media and on-site in a series of live presentations and lectures organized by MoMA PS1 in its temporary relief and cultural venue VW Dome 2 in Rockaway Beach during April 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 will make the selection from the open call.
Submit an idea in the format of a short video no longer than three minutes, using the following form, by March 15, 2013.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you experience trouble submitting.
Please note that in submitting entries, applicants acknowledge that the museum has the right to use the submitted material without further consent, including but not limited to use in public screenings, on digital platforms and in press materials.
EXPO 1: NEW YORK and the VW Dome 2 are made possible by a partnership with
Volkswagen of America.
