London Design Biennale 2016: architect Fernando Romero has unveiled plans for a binational city spanning the US-Mexico border, amid Donald Trump’s calls for a wall to be built between the two countries
Romero’s Border City presents a utopian vision for a city with dual nationality, where people and goods could move more freely across the US-Mexico border.
The masterplan is the antithesis to the hardline immigration and deportation views of US presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has plans to construct a wall along America’s southern border and foot Mexico with the bill.
Romero and his firm FR-EE aim to realise Border City over a 12-year period on a vast piece of privately owned land bordering the states of New Mexico, Texas and Chihuahua.
“This is a long-term vision, a utopian vision that is not about building walls but about thinking more ambitiously about the mutual relationship [between Mexico and America] and about what borders really mean between countries,” Romero told Dezeen at the opening of the first London Design Biennale, where the project is on show.
