Operating somewhere between the earnest public servant and the activist architect: the subversive project configures specifications as informatively objective. Architecture and technology bound to a physical wall where policy operates as an architectural intervention and the immediacy of information transforms the social-techno sphere. More specifically, the method employed for this thesis will more closely examine national policy for Nogales, AZ and describe the elements which make up the current wall while understanding its lineage. Through that lens, the project of documenting and ultimately creating a series of case studies will exaggerate and insult the condition of border.
