DETAILS

Assistant professor Ane Gonzalez Lara will present her research on the Lower Rio Grande of New Mexico as part of her participation in the Architecture League’s American Roundtable project.  In this project, seven features coming from diverse voices capture the challenges and potential of the lower Rio Grande Valley. These features include personal narratives, stories, and constituents that historically haven’t been included in the main narrative of this area. The report covers some of the leading issues that the region faces today, such as legacies of environmental racism, water scarcity, border security, indigenous rights, agricultural distress, and many more.
