A/D/O: Designing Water Futures


A/D/O: Designing Water Futures/ Presented by A/D/O

This discussion focuses on the urgent need to reimagine water culture for the twenty-first century and the role of designers in responding imaginatively to the challenges of the global water crisis. Topics include the need for interdisciplinary collaborations as well as renewed interest in alternative practices such as harvesting rain and other nature-based systems that address water challenges and can improve quality of life in Miami. In addition to addressing the pressing Miami context, the panel discusses projects emerging from A/D/O’s Water Futures program, including Water Tower by Studio Swine, while touching on relevant work by Tei Carpenter and Chris Woebken, Bio-Integrated Design Lab, Jane Withers, and Arabeschi di Latte.
