"Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape"
2005-02-04 until 2005-03-16
Museum of Modern Art
New York, NY, USA

Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape will present approximately 20 projects that reveal the recent surge of creativity and discussion surrounding the designed landscape in a broad, principally urban and international context. In the last 20 years, many significant new public spaces have been created for sites that have been reclaimed from conflict (such as a bombed site in downtown Manchester, England); environmental degradation (former industrial-era ruins and wastelands); and abandonment (such as railyards, docklands, and airports no longer in use).

Projects have been selected for their outstanding design and environmental responsibility and demonstrate a variety of scales, contexts, materials, and types of spaces. Models, drawings, photography, and video projections will document the sites and illustrate them before and after their transformations. Groundswell illustrates how the process of integration-using new and existing landforms and structures and innovative landscaping techniques-creates diverse, aesthetically pleasing, and meaningful new spaces. This exhibition is organized by Peter Reed, Curator, and Irene Shum, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design. The exhibition is the third in a series of five exhibitions made possible by The Lily Auchincloss Fund for Contemporary Architecture. Additional support is provided by the Estate of Florene M. Schoenborn and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund. The accompanying publication is made possible by Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown and Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund.
