An architects-in-residence program at P.S.1 (November 16, 2009–January 8, 2010) brings together five interdisciplinary teams, including Architecture Research Office (ARO), to re-envision the coastlines of New York and New Jersey around New York Harbor and to imagine new ways to occupy the harbor itself with adaptive “soft” infrastructures that are sympathetic to the needs of a sound ecology. These creative solutions are intended to dramatically change our relationship to one of the city’s great open spaces.
This installation presents the proposals developed during the architects-in-residence program, including a wide array of models, drawings, and analytical materials.
The exhibition is made possible by The Rockefeller Foundation. It is the first of five exhibitions in the series Issues in Contemporary Architecture, supported by Andre Singer.
