WaterFire, a sculpture of over 80 bonfires on Providence, Rhode Island’s three rivers, has come to symbolize the city’s renaissance. Created by artist Barnaby Evans in 1994, it attracts millions of visitors to downtown. The event would not be possible, however, if Providence architect and planner William D. Warner hadn’t previously uncovered and relocated the rivers, moved a highway, and created Waterplace Park for people to gather and watch. WaterFire captures what is magical about cities, and creates an ephemeral collective image. Placing fire in the modern city transcends and illuminates time in a way that begins to answer Lynch’s question “Might it also be possible to use environment to teach change instead of permanence?”

  1. Tengo problemas en manejar las interrupciones, por ejemplo tengo que tener dos informes para el dia, el primero lo voy a realizar en la mañana y el segundo en la tarde por que necesito un dato de un compañero, entonces tengo dos tareas: realizar informe 1 (en mi lista proxima tarea) y entregar datos para informe2 (lista delegado).Mientras yo trabajo en el informe1, mi compañero me pide ayuda para entregarme el dato y ahi se me produce el problema: si lo ayudo me salgo de mi tarea, pero si no lo ayudo no voy a tener el dato para hacer el informe2 de la tarde. ¿Como se podria manejar?
