Much like the policy and geography that define it, the line drawn between Mexico and the United States is malleable, literally shifting with time. Architecture firm Rael San Fratello has spent over a decade questioning the idea of the border and focusing on the evolving contexts of urbanism in borderlands.

Conceived, in part, as exercises in political subversion through design, Drawing the Line: Rael San Fratello at the U.S.-Mexico Border responds to the consequences of ostensibly permanent boundaries with impermanent histories for cultures and communities at the border. Taken as a whole, the projects shown here offer a conceptual dismantling of the border wall—usurping its meaning, reforming its identity, and stripping away its political power.
