WPA 2.0 phase 1

[WPA 2.0 competition is hosted by cityLAB.]

We are excited about the results from the recently hosted WPA 2.0 competition, and its enticing tagline: "Whoever Rules the Sewers Rules the City." The six selected projects look fantastic and we are honored to be among those included in the second phase developments.

Our project is titled Coupling Infrastructures: Water Economies/Ecologies and is centered on the twin dilemma of rising population and water shortages in the US southwest. In particular the project looks at terminal lakes in the region such as Salton Sea, Mono Lake, Pyramid Lake, and of course Owens Lake.

We will be developing the project at the XXL scale as well as the S scale, both to understand and position the water infrastructure systems regionally as well their role as a new public realm. We are now working toward September 26 for a workshop in Los Angeles. November 16 will be the next date, which is a presentation by the six teams and symposium in Washington, DC including the jury and national policy-makers.
