Work of Somatic Collaborative featured in new publicationApr 03, 2014
A collection of drawings from Somatic Collaborative, the design practice of Felipe Correa (associate professor of urban design) and Anthony Acciavatti (MArch ‘09), were published in Globalized Water: A Question of Governance, edited by Dr. Graciela Schneier-Madanes. The volume presents a compilation of voices that form a unique scientific exploration of contemporary water management models and government issues.
The work samples from Somatic Collaborative highlight the significant role of water in the shaping of settlements. Through a series of case studies – from the scarcity of water in the American Desert to the overabundance of water in the Amazon Basin–the visual essay probes the time-honored relationship between water, water management, and urban form.
