Three Major Watersheds Panel and Workshop with Derek Hoeferlin

April 3, 2023
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Derek Hoeferlin, associate professor and chair of landscape architecture & urban design, released his book “Way Beyond Bigness: The Need for a Watershed Architecture” this month.

The book repositions both meanings of the word “watershed” by providing an understanding of designing with water to integrate with the built environment, as well as by keeping contemporary tipping point events top of mind. The three rivers were studied in-depth by Hoeferlin via multiple field-research trips over the last 15 years, along with WashU research assistants and students.

Hoeferlin and Kotchakorn Voraakham, Sam Fox School designer-in-residence, will host an interactive panel and workshop on global challenges across these river basins April 3, 6-8 p.m., at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.
