Soft Infrastructures: New Ways of Water
July 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Columbia GSAPP Professor and award-winning author, Anthony Acciavatti, will present new ways of thinking about water filtration methods along the world’s most densely populated river basin – the Ganges river in India. By incorporating the rhythms of the monsoons and “hacking” current filtration systems, Acciavatti can give insights into the future of urban waterways and why designers must take a holistic approach to dealing with wastewater management and pressing issues surrounding drinking water.
The presentation will reflect on his time living near the Ganges and how that experience sparked his own ideas, designs and alternate solutions.
This event is part of an ongoing series of events, lectures and workshops for The A/D/O #WaterFutures Research Program – a yearlong investment challenging designers to research, concept and ideate scalable solutions to the global drinking water crisis.
