This research seeks to analyse environmental issues in the metropolitan area of Asunción, starting with a central element like water to test the reach of an interdisciplinary approach to the subject. Guided by the perspective of what is useful to Urban Design and Planning, it deals with the different elements related to water resources and how they interact with the urban ecosystem.
The specific objective is to create an introductory material about the subject that can guide basic technical consensus and at the same time be useful to undergrad students. This project also serves as scientific research practice to young architects in the expanded field of the discipline (Architecture-Design-Urban Planning).
It is funded by the ProCiencia program of the CONACYT (National Council for Science and Technology of Paraguay).
