This project was a group collaboration to design a border crossing station for ACSA/AISC Steel Competition. The Mexico and United States border crossing, located in Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Mexico, is traversed by many citizens of both countries as well as foreign visitors. A pleasant experience should be invoked as one crosses over the Rio Grande. A network of elevated pathways crossing the river creates the destination even before one arrives at the border station. These pedestrian pathways lead directly into the Customs Hall. The pathways are accessible by each side of the border, and they are planted with native vegetation, lined with seating, and provide an opportunity for the border-crossing community to come together. The flourishing environment gives it a park-like setting that helps people escape the urban surroundings. The building also uses solar shading, providing a comfortable interior environment, unlike the warmer climate. The pathways and the building create a concise, stress-free border crossing experience for both countries. Together they connect two countries, in a unique and experiential way, creating an efficient process.
