Description
Explores the relationship between users, both human and non-human, and the benefits and pleasures of designed water environments. From the visual effects of water display to the cooling impact of interactive features, from watery public parks that embrace biodiversity to civic spaces of community engagement, and from the poetry of renaturalized rivers to the performance of water infrastructure that deepen our thinking about the environment, designed water has historically served different purposes. This session expands on notions of users and use.
