Gabriel Kaprelian’s incubator workshop series, “Adaptive Urbanism: Participatory Design for a Resilient Lima,” reframes problems of urban development, social equity, and climate change in Lima as an opportunity for local community engagement, empowerment, and innovation utilizing techniques such as collective mapping and exercises including Lima 2100: Postcards from the Future.

Technology is utilized to build place-based knowledge and create interactive work that collectively address these pressing challenges. His facilitation technique focuses on developing innovative methods of enabling participatory urbanism to envision speculative futures.
