Water Urbanism: Beira

Urban Design Studio III, Spring 2020

Kate Orff (Coordinator), Lee Altman, Adriana Chavez, Dilip da Cunha, Geeta Mehta, Thaddeus Pawlowski, Julia Watson, Fitsum Gelaye

The Urban Design Studio work explored a holistic vision to foster a resilient recovery model supported by natural and social capital. We investigated the different roles stakeholders could play. We designed spatial concepts and analyzed how private sector industries, local institutions, communities, and NGOs can help create a more resilient Beira.
