The Climate Museum, a Planned Manhattan Museum Devoted Entirely to Climate Change

The Climate Museum is a planned museum in Manhattan that will be dedicated solely to climate change and it's impact around the world. The museum's organizers seek to create "a hub for climate science, art and dialogue: a beacon for solutions."

The museum is in the very early stages of planning, but has been accepting design proposals. Many design students and future architects from the Rhode Island School of Design and Tisch School of the Arts have submitted proposed sketches, as seen above.

Artist Olafur Eliasson and teams from the Rhode Island School of Design and Tisch School of the Arts have drawn up concept sketches for the facility, which received a provisional charter from the state last month. With climatologist profiles and interactive exhibits on what the future may bring, the museum hopes to host (and educate) a million visitors annually. Massie recently told the New York Times: “If you don’t have the right to thrive as an organism, then everything else falls away…I came to see the environment as a civil rights issue.”

Be sure to follow the Museum's progress on Twitter or Facebook.
