The South American Project (SAP) is a trans-continental applied research network that proactively endorses the role of design within rapidly transforming geographies of the South American Continent. SAP specifically focuses on how a spatial synthesis best afforded by design can provide alternative physical and experiential identities to the current spatial transformations reshaping the South American Hinterland. SAP brings together over 131 participants from the Americas and across the globe, who are leading 23 collaborative projects in 11 countries, under the auspices of 43 public and private sponsors.By drawing together individuals who work in different disciplines from across the Americas, SAP combines diverse design methodologies that can create alternative models to not only visualize and evaluate the effects of fast-paced urbanization, but also to propose specific pilot projects for alternative models of urbanization in the region. Ranging from small, highly calibrated interventions to larger territorial visions, this collection of multiple individual projects diverse in ambition, scale, and scope unite these otherwise dispersed proposals within a single organization, and articulate the methodological and instrumental diversity that design can to the regions current culture of development.

Hosted by the Buenos Aires Architecture Biennale and Revista PLOT, SAP / Projects in Process exhibits an interim overview of the networks applied research and design projects. In addition to the exhibition, the symposium will as platform for deliberation and action, providing clear directives for future development of this collective work.
