On 8 May, Anuradha Mathur and Dilip Da Cunha (Mathur & da Cunha, Philadelphia) discussed how they have focused their artistic and design expertise on cultural and ecological issues of contentious landscapes.
An underlying thread in their work is a concern for how water is visualized and engaged in ways that lead to conditions of its excess and scarcity, but also the opportunities that its fluidity offers for new visualizations of terrain, design imagination, and design practice.
Anuradha Mathur is an architect and landscape architect as well as Associate Professor and Associate Chair of Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dilip Da Cunha is an architect and planner. He is faculty at Parsons School of Design, New York and the School of Design, University of Pennsylvania.
This session is presented by Luis Feduchi from UQ School of Architecture.
