Niagora is a master plan for the built environment surrounding the Peace Bridge at the US-Canada border crossing by Buffalo, New York. It rests on research into the new opportunities afforded by electronic assisted toll payment and border crossings. Formerly largely a wasteland, the new bi-national zone is imagined as a contemporary agora at the Niagara River’s mouth.

This project rests on the research project Phantom Tollbooth Plaza
