In collaboration with the Mamertine Corporation of the United States, Mexican firm Estudio 3.14 launched a project called 'Prison-Wall' to explore the idea of building a wall across the US-Mexico border, as proposed by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. But rather than envisioning the controversial proposal as a means of keeping Mexican immigrants out of the United States, this concept reimagines the wall as a celebration of Mexico's architectural heritage—and at the same time, "allow the public to imagine the policy proposal in all of its gorgeous perversity."
Inspired by the designs of Pritzker Prize-winning Mexican architect Luis Barragán, Prison-Wall is imagined as a long-spanning structure that's painted pink.
In response to the upcoming upcoming US presidential election, many designers are creating politically inspired projects to express their concerns about a variety of issues around the world and close to home.
