The Museum for Missing Places is an attempt to chart the shifting terrain of a city - Houston, Texas - through a process as fleeting as the city itself.

Using interactive, dialogue-based exhibits, the Museum proposes alternative ways of mapping a city in the context of rapid and unregulated urban change and the uncertainty of enduring architectural landmarks.

As a museum in the traditional sense, this project is about gathering, ordering and exhibiting information in various mediums and formats. What distinguishes the information of this museum is its specificity to Houston's elusive urbanism and that it's gathered through an expanding body of public surveys designed by the Museum and situated in Houston's public places.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
