Additionally and in collaboration with two other CCa faculty members Zylbelberg and Roach, Vivanco is teaching a seminar and studio on the Guarani Aquifer territory shared by Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The results of this work will be presented at an international conference taking place at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in October 2013 as part of a network of North and South American academic institutions better known as the SAP South American Project.
