CNN drops in on Colonias Unidas in Las Lomas, home of the “Border Studio”

The Border Studio, a project developed and organized by Peter Lang and launched from the department of architecture at Texas A&M in College Station Texas, is working with one community, the Colonias Unidas, in Las Lomas, a town in the Rio Grande Valley.  Now going into its third year the Border Studio includes a number of diverse faculty from the College, including John Nichols from the Department of Construction Science, and Cecilia Giusti from the Department of Landscape Architecture and Planning. We also are working with London Metropolitan University’s Department of Architecture and Spatial Design and in Austin the CMPBS with Pliny Fisk. Links to specific courses are provided on the left Links bar.
