The Other Border Wall Project, conceived by JM Design Studio in Pittsburgh, is a response to efforts to build a fortified border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. The project seeks designs that are anti-walls, like a border made of hammocks, lighthouses, and pipe organs. Projects will be displayed at Houston’s Flatland Gallery.
Leah Patgorski, a co-founder of JM Studio, describes, “It is our hope to activate the public imagination with designs that work together to dismantle the view of the border as a fortified, insurmountable and destructive barrier.”
