UD 722 Fluid Boundaries
Instructed by Kathy Velikov  
Winter 2019

The Fluid Boundaries studio will engage students in navigating design questions within a socio-politically charged context. The work of the studio will explore design of new public spaces, landscapes, buildings, objects, practices, and processes within the US-Mexico border metropolis of El-Paso-Ciudad Juárez. The work of the studio will focus on water as territory commodity, and reproductive agent; how the concrete politics of its negotiation and control produce the physical spaces of the borderland. Design will be mobilized to address water systems, water rights, and urban media.
