Landscapes of Water

Summer School

Location: Critical Concrete – Social & Sustainable Architecture Porto, Portugal

Date: 15-19 August, 2016

How do water resources come and leave our cities? CUW is invited to discuss with the students how water is mobilized from different distant areas located outside the boundaries of the city, and transformed into commodity to sustain contemporary urban life. Tracing water flows will be used to reflect on not only the growing consumption and dependence on water in cities, and the expansion of the resource frontier, but also the invisible impacts on the environment and the struggles of marginalized populations.
