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 course will look at the geomorphological process of the region and the methods in which each country manages the river. The stark differences between the two countries will be examined at the local level and the impacts it poses through its landscape.
There will also be an online symposium with a great line-up of speakers held on the 10 June, further details please visit our Eventbrite page.
Encompassing myriad forms and agendas, the Visiting School courses and workshops are built around agenda-driven project briefs that are pursued and shaped by students working intensively in small groups led by AA tutors. Central to each is the idea that experimental, new and provocative forms of architecture are best learned by doing. The school promotes, tests and challenges global interests in architectural learning and exchange by embedding a diverse group of creative students and tutors in an array of unique rural, urban and international contexts. From continental Europe to the Middle East, Asia, Australia and the Americas, the AA Visiting School offers new and unexpected learning opportunities all over the world. Places on each course are limited, and anybody who would like to further their architectural knowledge and skills can apply.
