Ronald Rael will discuss how the borderlands are a site for creative production and will share stories from the book Borderwall as Architecture, an important re-examination of what the 700 miles of physical barrier that divides the United States of America from the United Mexican States is, and what it could be. 

Ronald Rael is the Eva Li Memorial Chair, Professor, and Acting Chair of Architecture and Affiliate Professor of Art Practice at UC Berkeley. His research connects indigenous and traditional material practices to contemporary technologies and issues.
