CROSSINGS + BOUNDARIES TALK: BORDERWALL AS ARCHITECTURE
Ronald Rael holds the Eva Li Memorial Chair in Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. He is an applied architectural researcher, design activist, author, and thought leader in the fields of additive manufacturing and earthen architecture. He is the author of Borderwall as Architecture: A Manifesto for the U.S.-Mexico Boundary (2017), which advocates for a reconsideration of the existing barrier dividing the U.S. and Mexico through design proposals that are hyperboles of actual scenarios that have occurred as a consequence of the wall.
