A new Kickstarter campaign is hoping to raise a goal of $3,500 to fund the second annual – a workshop that focuses on community mapping and brings diverse people and minds together to think about cities within the US-Mexican border region.

Taking place June 26 – July 5, the AA Mexico City Visiting School will engage with the most crucial and imposing challenges that faces and the ways in which architecture and can shape the metropolis at different scales. In this sense the international program sees the city as a laboratory where the virtual and experimental tradition of the Architectural Association finds a fertile and concrete ground for the application of its methodology in Mexico. With the theme of “Manufactured Landscapes/Manufactured Urbanities”, the program explores the metropolitan condition understood as a manufactured process by and for human beings.
