2.4 feet separates flooding river and tranquil stream. The two border cities of Ciudad Acuña and Del Rio in Mexico and the United States, respectively, have experienced four major floods within 60 years. Separated by the intersections of the Rio Grande and San Felipe Creek, the water body is regarded negatively, a constant threat to occupy the flood plain region that encompasses the city edge of Ciudad Acuña and the lower edge of Del Rio. The proposal introduces three dams at the rivers’ confluence to create dams that control water levels, reinvigorating water as a shared amenity of the region. Above the water height is a River Centre Cultural Museum. Organized from realistic to utopian thought, security measures are integrated on the outermost rings of vehicular and pedestrian circulation to allow for increased porosity and binational interactions within the centre. Closest to the river, this central museum space immerses its visitors with views of the water around and below. Integrating with the two cities via pedestrian bridges and boardwalks, the proposal challenges the imposed border of the two nations, the Rio Grande River, as well as highlights the water’s fundamental and connecting potential for the two river cities.
