A comparison of border wall fencing

These are 3D diagrams I produced for a comparison of border wall fencing that runs along just a small portion of the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. The images were part of “The Wall,” a multi-part Pulitzer award-winning series by staffs of the Arizona Republic and the USA Today Network that explored the impact of a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.

The first chapter of the series, “Where fences begin, and why they end,” explored the wall as it existed when the story was published, and these images helped illustrate the pedestrian fencing and vehicle barriers that make up much of the border wall.

Piece of the first chapter of “The Wall” series.

I also contributed an animated version of the logo that accompanied the videos in the series:

The series was awarded the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting.
