The “Burrito Wall”
Just when you think the open-borders crowd and Berzekeley professors can’t get any more insane, along comes another one to leave you flabbergasted.
Meet UC Berkeley architect professor Ron Rael.
He would like to completely declare surrender of our sovereignty and border security, and turn the border wall (what little exists) into a social justice mall.
If you can’t beat it, redesign it. An assistant professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, Ron Rael, is not exactly a fan of the 700-mile series of separation barriers that have been erected between the United States and Mexico. He says the wall is expensive, detrimental to the environment, ineffective, and even deadly, since hundreds die of dehydration each year as they try to cross the culture…he has re-envisioned the wall as something like a town center, complete with infrastructure, social services, and recreational facilities. Among the stations he envisions along the wall are a volleyball court, a confessional, a lending library, a water catchment system, a wastewater treatment plant, a solar farm, and even a “burrito wall” featuring “a food cart inserted into the wall, allowing people from each side of the border to share a meal, chat and conduct business, all within full view of security.” The designs are partly practical, partly satirical: call it ironic architecture.
Yet he’s drawing inspiration directly from life. “These are ongoing things that are already happening to a certain extent,” he tells Co.Design. “There are exchanges of food and money through the wall already.”

Hey, why not add a Project Gunrunner boutique while you’re at it, prof?!
