Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha: What We Learn from Water

There are two waters in design. The first is somewhere in flows and gatherings: in rivers, oceans, channels, pipes, reservoirs and lakes. The second water is everywhere, a ubiquitous wetness that does not necessarily flow. It precipitates, soaks, seeps, osmotes, and evaporates in ways that defy delineation. If the first water is in a crisis today with rising seas, melting glaciers, increasing floods, pollution, and scarcity, the second holds a way forward for design.
