Felipe Correa and the South America Project featured in PLOT MagazineJun 20, 2012
The theory section of the Buenos Aires-based PLOT magazine featured the South America Project (SAP) in its most recent issue. The magazine presents an overview of the SAP conference held at the GSD last October, and highlights the work in progress of the research network.
SAP, launched at the GSD by Felipe Correa, Assistant Professorof Urban Design, and Ana Maria Duran (LF '11) is a trans-continental applied research network that proactively endorses the role of design within rapidly transforming geographies of the South American Continent. SAP specifically focuses on how a spatial synthesis best afforded by design can provide alternative physical and experiential identities to the current spatial transformations reshaping the South American Hinterland, in particular fast paced modes of resource extraction and an unprecedented regional integration at a continental scale (primarily through roads, energy grids, fluvial corridors and telecommunication networks).
