COMPETITION _ 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 in the press and social media and on-site in a series of live presentations and lectures organized by MoMA PS1 in its temporary relief and cultural 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.
