DESCRIPTION

Stream Daylighting
For generations, we have planned, engineered and designed our communities so that we minimize our contact with water in the name of public health & safety, efficiency and protection from storms. During this course, we will explore what is possible if we rethink how our communities interact and embrace our natural systems. We will travel to Mexico City during fall break to visit the Rio Piedad and to work with those that are making the dream of daylighting the river a reality.
