“Two Sides of the Border” is a feat of imagination as much as it is a diligent study: under the direction of Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao, thirteen architecture studios and students challenged the dominance of the US/Mexican border.

The result is a compendium of essays, interviews, projects, maps and photos by Iwan Baan that looks beyond arbitrary and artificial boundaries to imagine a region shared rather than divided.

Torre David

Torre David, a 45-story skyscraper in Caracas, has remained uncompleted since the Venezuelan economy collapsed in 1994.
