Rising Currents: The Hudson

Hudson River, 2006. Courtesy Architecture Research Office

As we get ready to begin the installation of the MoMA exhibition next week, I wanted to take a step back and offer a visual reflection on a central figure in this exhibition. Our thanks to Architecture Research Office for poetically capturing the essence of Rising Currents. Click on the image to view the video clip.


Good day.Beautiful images and intereting blog.I have been introduced to MOma by a media professional aftter we had given him a proposal on how we could best manage audio material that the Botswana National Museum has been collecting since 1984.The Museum hosts a radio program that deals with Botswana heritage but has no systematic archiving.In anycase he refefered to Moma media management solutions and i Thought its a wonderful system that the Museum here could venture into.Browsing through, your museum is virtually all online.Is it possible to form a collaboration or sort of bench marking exercise? All media files are in disarray and we think your solution is the best.We also have a blog at where we wanted to postcast topics aired but lack expertise.


Botswana National Museum

This project and related exhibition deal with an important and timely topic, which has been studied by several firms. It would be great to see a larger more inclusive exhibition that shows a spectrum of ideas, such as:

very gooooooood

how relaxinggggggggg

why not post it on the Facebook & create a worldwide awarness

This was an incredible look at how we as humans will deal with the question of climate change. I’m glad we have forward thinking architects amongst us as it might be impossible to curb the damage that is currently being done to our environment. Without groups of people as displayed in this exhibit we would have no way of adapting to rising water levels. Bravo, and a pat on the back for everybody!

I got the Moma link from an article in a Union paper that was written about rising water levels. It is good to see that more people are trying to inform the public about conditions that are developing worldwide and what is being done to slow or reverse these conditions since the government informs us but seems to restrict how much and what is said to the general public.

awesome exhibit.

c magnifike

As an urban fisherman I feel we need to start by protecting what we have now. The true N.Y. shoreline, it’s extent and potential has not been understood by New Yorkers since Henry Hudson sailed in. Wonderful plans, would a capitalist system allow it?

When i saw the water it made me feel relaxed and i watched it over and over again and i almost fell asleep!!!!!! -_-

i want to have business with you guys..;)

I am researching the future of urban morphology and fabric for a climatologist and I found this all very interesting.


I am visiting the MoMA with my mom who is a pro.artist and who has her work in lots of exhebitions and has recently put her work in a galerie in Bratislava.My mom and I agree that this is the best museum ever!!!

C’est vraiment magnifique le MOMA nous permet d’explorer un monde d’art et de magie photographique du 20eme siecle et la salle ou est exposer des dessin d’enfants de 8 ans, MAGNIFIQUE
