Felipe Correa to speak at Princeton/UCLA Watershed WorkshopJan 31, 2012
Felipe Correa, Assistant Professor of Urban Design, will present his recent work on water-based urbanism at the Princeton/UCLA Watershed Workshop, to be held February 3–4, 2012 in Los Angeles. The workshop examines the role of design in the future of watersheds in diverse urban contexts.
Following the Watershed Atelier in Paris, France (2011), the Watershed Workshop in Los Angeles, California cuts a cross section of the earth in relationship to water extraction and harvesting. The workshop is subdivided into three sections: Air to Surface, Surface to Surface, and Subsurface to Surface. Each section engages the gravity and cycles of water through a particular lens and its multiscalar relationship to cities.
