Rising Currents
Projects for New York's Waterfront

Rising Currents: Projects for New York’s Waterfront presents “soft infrastructure” solutions for making New York City more resilient to the effects of climate change, documenting the innovative proposals of five teams of architects, landscape architects, engineers, ecologists, and artists convened for a 2009–10 workshop and exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1. This volume presents the projects in detail, featuring essays summarizing the pioneering initiative, the dialogues it has engendered around the future of regional planning, and the climate change and urban planning implications of the proposed solutions.
