Description
In the book "Hyper-Border: The Contemporary U.S.–Mexico Border,” author Romero/Lar states: “The traditional functions of international borders are being tested by globalization…. A new framework is needed, one that embraces complexity and multilateral viewpoints yet considers common values that connect people throughout the world." Recent focus on a border wall has proved increasingly divisive. This session will show examples of how social and political conditions along the border offer real challenges to the architectural and design communities on both sides.
