Borderlands Lecture Series

Borderwall as Architecture - Ronald Rael

Professor Ronald Rael will speak of the work in his artistic and design practice, including design activism along the US-Mexico border and 3D printing, and how his work is influenced by the Borderlands of the San Luis Valley.

Rael holds the Eva Li Memorial Chair in Architecture and a joint appointment in the Department of Architecture in the College of Environmental Design and the Department of Art Practice at UC Berkeley. He's the author of Borderwall as Architecture: A Manifesto for the US-Mexico Boundary (University of California Press, 2017), an illustrated biography and protest of the wall dividing the United States from Mexico.
