Transborder Landscapes Programme from Architectural Association is a design research course on the US/MX Transborder Landscapes, addressing complex socio-political, climate and territorial questions.


In response to the socio-economic impact the landscape poses, Transborder Landscapes looks at the Tijuana River, an interface between San Diego and Tijuana, to inform policy through design interventions, cartography, and agency through the local communities. 

The Transborder Landscapes Programme from Architectural Association will look at the geomorphological process of the region and the methods in which each country manages the river.
