The Water Pore Partnership seeks to reposition water infrastructure as a civic and cultural presence in the public realm, and to rewrite a sustainable water economy. POREFORM is a design proposal to recast flood water and runoff as a local resource instead of a dangerous liability. It is an urban surface - an intelligent and flexible system of pores - that absorbs and collects water like a skin for the city. Capable of rapid saturation and slow release, the pores of this urban skin are inlets to a new adaptable infrastructure at its surface.
