Here the provoking proposal developed by the intern program at Estudio 3.14. So, will this be real? The wall was inspired by Luis Barragán’s pink walls, which are a real Mexican heritage, taking advantage of the tradition in architecture of megalomaniac wall building. Moreover, the wall is not only a wall: it is a prison where 11 million undocumented people will be processed, classified, indoctrinated, and/or deported.
Done in collaboration with prof. Hassanaly Ladha, from the University of Connecticut, the long wall along the Mexican-American border crosses various border landscapes (hills, desert, a border crossing over a river, and in urban Tijuana). The project is completed with floor plans, iconography, and an infographic, as well as symbolic use of the wall on the American currency. Estudio 3.14 is a design firm based in Guadalajara, México.
