Canada and the US may share the longest undefended border in the world, but that hasn't stopped the two countries from teaming up to make the Warroad Land Port of Entry by Julie Snow Architects.

Designed to be a thoroughly modern, secure and sustainable structure, the Warroad Land Port of Entry by Julie Snow Architects is sheathed almost entirely in sustainable timber. Furthermore, because the border crossing serves as an entry point into Minnesota from the Canadian prairies, it features a design that pays tribute to the vast expanses and the seemingly unbroken horizon of its surrounding landscape.

Largely on account of its geothermal heating and cooling system, rainwater recycling and passive day-lighting design, the Warroad Land Port of Entry by Julie Snow Architects is currently on track to receive a coveted LEED silver accreditation.
