Rio Paisanos Workshop in San Luis Potosí, Mexico

In October, Professor de la Peña traveled to Mexico to deliver a keynote talk on participatory design and to facilitate a 3-day workshop with architect Marcela Lopez of the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí. Working with a dozen students and community members, they evaluated ecological and social conditions in the polluted and flood-prone Rio Paisanos and proposed conceptual improvements. The workshop helped catalyze interest in a “Save the River” project that will continue in the coming year and will hopefully lead to further collaborations.
