Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape

Navigate from a map at this MoMA Web site to explore 23 urban landscape projects located all around the world. There are gardens, parks, and museum campuses, intended for public use, often reclaiming abandoned or degraded industrial land. Basic information is provided for all 23 sites. For example, the entries for the Shanghai Carpet, a plaza above underground parking, with stone, brick, and timber construction, or Lurie Garden in Millennium Park in Chicago, Ill., consist of a drawing or model, the project description and credits, and photographs. Six of the entries give additional information: a lengthier project section, with descriptions and credits; a site section with schematic plans; and an animated experience section, allowing visitors to see the site from different angles and in different conditions. For example, see the Schouwburgplein, (Theater Square) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, from an aerial view, night view in the rain, or as if seated on a bench outside.
