The "border wall" has been a key element of President Trump's speeches since the beginning of his campaign, but how would such a barrier, combined with the administration's immigration policies, impact the architecture and construction industries? Artists, architects, labor experts, immigration advocates and contractors will discuss their understanding of the implications of this administration's policies on our built environment. Co-presented by the Architecture Lobby.
