Felipe Correa on Design in the Latin American City

On May 10, Felipe Correa (associate professor of urban design) moderated the Instrumentality of Design in the Latin American City as part of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies advisory committee weekend in Santiago, Chile. The symposium brought together a multi-disciplinary group of Harvard faculty and speakers from throughout Latin America in order to enhance connections and synergies among existing Harvard initiatives. Ana Maria Durán (Ecuador, LF ‘11), Alejandro Aravena (Chile, design critic ’00-04), Giancarlo Mazzanti (Colombia), and Fernando de Mello Franco (Brazil), showcased the methodological and instrumental diversity of urban design through a series of South American case studies.
