One of their most recent projects, 'Bending the River Back Into the City' (pictured below), is a three-part intervention that literally diverts water from the LA River back into LA, distributing it via "the city's first water commons, to allow the currency of water to create social capital."</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/25/254rdbiq2yu466lz.jpg"></p><p>Lou Pesce, an artist with Metabolic Studio, joined us at Next Up to discuss. As concerns about gentrification, public access and the drought raise issues of ownership and equity along the LA River, I wanted to ask about the economic ideas behind 'Bending the River' and how the project relates to the river's specific role in LA history.</p><p>Listen to&nbsp;<strong><a href="http://archinect.com/sessions" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect Sessions</a>&nbsp;</strong><strong>Mini-Session #5 of '<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/842448/next-up-la-river-mini-session" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Next Up: The LA River</a>' with Lou Pesce</strong>:</p><ul></ul><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/archinect-sessions/id928222819" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen</a>, and click the "Subscribe" button...</li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/149979308/listen-to-next-up-the-la-river-mini-session-3-with-steven-appleton-and-catherine-gudis Listen to 'Next Up: The LA River' Mini-Session #3 with Steven Appleton and Catherine Gudis Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2016-11-18T20:04:00-05:00 >2016-11-26T18:06:08-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/h0/h0g3byehlmcc2f26.jpg" width="650" height="383" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Steven Appleton and Catherine Gudis are some of Next Up's most active participants when it comes to physically&nbsp;<em>being</em>&nbsp;in the LA River.
