Due to the continuous struggle for undocumented migration, the U.S. Mexico border has always been on of the most misunderstood. This thesis tries to form awareness of the number of migrants that are seeking asylum in the United States. Most of these people are coming from Central and South America to experience the American dream, a concept that many do not get to achieve. Understanding the physical and cultural aspects from departing their homeland, arrival at the border, possible deportation, the admission into the country, and starting from zero. Nowadays, the southern border wall has turned into a cancerous divider that needs to be reconnected.
But how could we treat something that was designed to operate as a barrier for separation? Architecture could be the way by looking at the spaces in between to heal the border. Introducing programmatic elements along the border to create a healthy interaction between both regions.
