Re-saturated: Toward a Cultural Reconnection with Urban Water Campbell, Marissa


This project considers the multi-functional urban blueway as an opportunity to increase public engagement with water and concern for waterscapes of tomorrow. Establishing a reciprocal relationship with water requires public support and awareness, which can be cultivated through design as visitors rethink these relationships and recognize their individual and cumulative responsibilities. Through the development of future narratives, this project will explore potential blue-green components of Vancouver’s proposed False Creek to Fraser River corridor — a critical opportunity to enlighten citizens on current patterns of use and mismanagement of water, and the collective role we play in shaping these systems for the better.
