Urban interventions in Bolivia

The work of two Harvard University Graduate School of Design students designing and implementing urban interventions in Cochabamba, Bolivia, were featured in the local newspaper, Los Tiempos. Michael Lee and Jessica Sevilla (both MDes ’15), students in the Art, Design and the Public Domain program, are working on their theses and collaborating with the cultural institution mARTadero and the city’s University of San Simon.

Lee and Sevilla are investigating notions of “public space” and a consolidated “community,” particularly in a historically and ethnically fractured country.
