Summary
"Borderwall as Architecture is an account of the barrier that divides the United States of America from the United States of Mexico. It is an historical account, a protest against the wall, and a projection about its future through a series of propositions that suggest that the wall in its conception is an opportunity for economic and social development along the border. The book makes this case by taking readers on a conceptual journey along a wall that cuts through a "third nation"--The Divided States of America. Along this journey the transformative effects of the wall on people, animals and the natural and built landscape are exposed and called into question through the story of people, who on both sides of the border, transform the wall--giving it new meaning by challenging its very existence in remarkably creative ways. Coupled with these real-life accounts are unsolicited counter proposals for the wall, that re-imagine, hyperbolize, or question the wall and its construction, cost, performance and its meaning. These proposals work from the proposition that despite the intended use of the wall to keep people out and away, the wall is instead an attractor, engaging both sides in a common dialogue."--Provided by publisher
