WATER FUTURES LAUNCH SYMPOSIUM

On March 21, World Water Day, we formally launched #WaterFutures and The Design Challenge at A/D/O with a keynote by Dr. Upmamu Lall, Director of Columbia University Water Center and presentations and discussions from Studio Swine, Mary Miss of City as a Living Laboratory, Paul Gallay of River Keeper and Emma Riley of Lonely Whale and others.

ABOUT

The A/D/O Water Futures Research Program addresses and explores the drinking water crisis and asks: How can design help address this in the future? Responding to the tensions around water in the urban environment and the shift for cities to ban the single use disposable plastic bottle, Water Futures aims to inspire designers to take action in reimagining our toxic drinking water culture and design alternative realities.

CURATED BY JANE WITHERS
