Border Wall Architecture Project: How Seesaws Brough A Nation To Its Knees

How hot pink boards brought a nation to its knees

I know I’m a bit late to the game here, but this will always be worth talking about for what it accomplished while it existed. For those who haven’t heard, Ronald Rael – a professor of architecture – and co. installed bright pink seesaws at the border wall in Juarez.

Instagram will load in the frontend.

Although it was up for only a few hours (with strong assurances from border patrol that no goods or services were transported across the border), the installation stands as an example of how creativity can alter even hostile situations, and bring joy to our lives.
