The MoMA is kicking off  a new exhibit today, “In Situ: Architecture and Landscape,” an exploration of the relationship between the built environment and its surrounding landscape.  Exhibited 20th century works of architecture and landscape will highlight  “spatial, social, and environmental aspects of human life and how they had profound reverberations in both architecture and landscape design.”  Works include Frank Lloyd Wright, Roberto Burle Marx and Tadao Ando, to name a few.

Show runs until September 14.
