Slow Water

Daisy Ames
Due to the lack of access to regular maintenance and inability for water infrastructure to adapt to increased population growth and change in climate, “Slow Water” puts forth a new model for collecting, cleaning and delivering water to residents in the South Bronx. Our proposal for future living provides housing for primarily single mothers who share lifestyles and goals of raising their children within a supportive community and pushes for parent-child and parent-community interpersonal relationships guided by a spectrum of individual and shared water experiences to improve livelihood. Our project hopes to bridge something beyond just an economic model of housing sustainability, striving for human driven empathetic spaces. Instead of a hardline distinction between spaces, the programs are interspersed amongst the living units, weaving in and out between spaces as a way to connect public and private, wet and dry, shared and individual.
