Help the Rockaways: MoMA’s call for ideas

MoMA is asking artists, architects, designers and urban planners to present ideas for creating social spaces, new housing models, urban interventions and other ideas related to rebuilding and protecting the shoreline of the Rockaways, an area devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

Submissions, which are due by 15 March,  will judged by a jury led by MoMA director Klaus Bisenbach and including Barry Bergdoll, Peter Eleey, Pedro Gadanho, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Niklas Maak, and others.  25 entries will be selected and presented in April 2013 in the geodesic dome MoMA is building in the Rockaways to serve as a site for culture and community gathering.

All information, including submission details and an impressive filmic portrayal of the Rockaways and the effects of Sandy can be found here:
