Abstract
Joint research between Columbia (NY) and Polytechnic University (Madrid) to depth in Water Landscapes, comparing the study cases: Croton (NY) and Lozoya (Madrid). Both are contemporary projects and have several territorial infrastructures such as canals, reservoirs, dams, aqueducts, etc. that have a very interesting discourse and where a multidisciplinary team (architects, civil engineers, forestry engineers, art historians?) from both universities could deepen. Civil engineering is an essential figure in the composition of cultural landscape and its territorial transcendence has not been enough studied and substantiated. Research on New York heritage and landscape of civil engineering for the book La construcción del Nueva York moderno. Protagonistas, obras y significados
