In my visit to MOMA my favorite exhibit was the architecture exhibit. I was really amazed by all of the designs and blueprints of cities and neighborhoods when looking through this exhibit. The one thing about this exhibit that I really liked was that, through this exhibit I was able to realize what architects really did. Before this exhibit I always thought architects only made the models of buildings that were pleasing to the eye, but from this exhibit I saw that they also think about resources and energy of their structures. In one of the models, the architect displayed how the city they built will create energy and how they will conserve it. They made the city extremely eco-friendly causing almost no pollution to the earth. Another part of the architecture exhibit that I liked was they part where they talked about the foreclosing crisis that occurred America a couple of months ago. This part of the exhibit gave us facts about the foreclosure and what the architects are doing to help the cause. In the Summer of 2011, five interdisciplinary teams of architects, engineers, urban planners, ecologists and landscape designers joined together to envision new housing and transportation infrastructures that could catalyze urban transformation, particularly in the country’s suburbs. This really put art into perspective because it was being used to help people. Art was not just used to be aesthetically pleasing, but it was being used to create better neighborhoods and cities. Also being an engineer myself, I found it really interesting to see what kind of work we could be doing in the future. Although I visited a lot of other exhibits, I had a hard time appreciating the art in MOMA and I was not able to really appreciate and connect to the art in this museum. There is something about modern art that makes it really hard for me to appreciate it. However overall I really enjoyed the experience in MOMA as well.
I feel like my experience at MOMA was less exciting than the MET, but I was still able to enjoy all the art in the museum.
