Hyperborder

Crossing the border between Tijuana (above) and San Diego, California.

Work Worth Doing collaborated with LAR/Fernando Romero to research and design a book called Hyperborder. This study begins at the global level before narrowing down to the U.S.-Mexico border, the world’s most contrasting and dynamic border region in the world. The book presents a brief summary of the U.S.-Mexico border region’s recent history providing a much-needed context for a detailed portrait of the many unique issues the two countries face today. Using current economic, political, social, and environmental trends, Hyperborder presents future scenarios—both positive and negative—for the border at the midway mark of the twenty-first century.
