Speaker: Graciela Silvestri, Harvard Graduate School of Design; Universidad Nacional La Plata in Argentina

The talk will present the major lines of an ongoing research project on a territory in South America, the Guaranì Region, a territory that in more than one sense can be defined as aquatic. The omnipresence of water in the region challenges our usual ways of thinking of the world, both culturally and technically.
