Description
Recounts and expands on the relationship of designing water to technological advances, from the aqueducts of Rome that enabled the water features of Tivoli, to the equipment and digital advances that sponsor high-tech fountains in Dubai, Las Vegas, and Macau, to advanced thinking about the promise of soft infrastructure to promote more resilient cities. This session focuses on imagining ways to build features and infrastructural systems that expand the aesthetics of water while innovatively addressing programmatic needs, client wishes, and the urban concerns of the 21st Century.
