School of Architecture | Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment • Student | Simon Betsalel • Faculty | David Burney, Signe Neilsen, John Shapiro •
Infrastructure in America is in decline and there is an urgent need to address funding deficits, environmental injustices, and urban sustainability. The siloed world of infrastructure can be rethought to help address these challenges and provide broader public benefit. A more visible presence of these systems can help the public understand their function and importance. This Spring 2021 MS in UPM Demonstration of Professional Competence explores wastewater treatment facilities and makes placemaking recommendations for achievable and aspirational facility improvements.
