*South America Project (SAP): Hinterland Urbanisms - Symposium and Network

The South America Project (SAP) is a trans-continental applied research
network that proactively endorses the role of design within rapidly
transforming geographies of the South American Continent. SAP specifically
focuses on how a spatial synthesis best afforded by design can provide
alternative physical and experiential identities to the current spatial
transformations reshaping the South American Hinterland, in particular fast
paced modes of resource extraction and an unprecedented regional integration
at a continental scale (primarily through roads, fluvial corridors, and
telecommunication networks). Launched by Felipe Correa and Ana María Durán,
with the support of the Department of Urban Planning and Design at the
Harvard Graduate School of Design and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin
American Studies, the project brings together a broad host of academic
institutions, scholars and designers from diverse fields, in order to create
a projective platform that can allow for architecture and the diverse
disciplines affiliated to the constructed environment to actively partake in
proposing more comprehensive models of urbanization for South America.
