The Fall 2013 semester of ENGR215 Introduction to Design worked with Mary Mattingly and WetLand to design and build sustainable projects for an island-based ecosystem and mobile habitat floating on the Delaware River during Summer 2014.

Partnerships[edit]

Partnerships are an essential element of the WetLand project, as they signify a meaningful connection to and buy-in from the community. In addition to a partner in education with whom we will develop an internship component, potential partners include: the Philadelphia Water Department, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation the U.S. Coast Guard, local neighborhood civic associations, as well as Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. Partnering with non-arts organizations will not only give Live Arts/Fringe access to new audiences and resources, but also provide their expert perspective on the topics of water conservation and sustainable living.

Projects[edit]

The Fall 2013 semester of ENGR215 Introduction to Design worked with WetLand to research, design, and build systems that foster the artists living sustainably onboard a barge in the waterways of Philadelphia.
