SCE presents, Waste Not 7: Poreform, hosted by Andrew Bernheimer, Director of Master of Architecture at Parsons, and presented by Amy Mielke, co-founder of Water Pore Partnership.

Poreform is a design proposal for a new type of water infrastructure that reveals an in-situ desire to capture runoff and flood water for reuse in our country’s thirstiest urban environments. Poreform uses the desert city of Las Vegas to study a scalable urban response to water scarcity and excess.  Rapidly compounding water debt, destructive flooding during rainstorms, outmoded infrastructure, and vast tracts of underutilized urban land make Las Vegas the perfect testbed for a new water infrastructure.”
