Donald Trump’s Prison Wall By Estudio 3.14

Interns at Mexican architecture firm Estudio 3.14 decided to take on the concept of the America/Mexico border wall wished upon the real estate tycoon, former reality TV star and now President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.

Since the project’s labor and cost would be settled by Mexico and its government, the studio suggests that the estimated 3,145 kilometre wall be coloured pink in homage to Pritzker Prize-winning Mexican architect, Luis Barragán. Besides the function as a border between Mexico and the United States the interns developed the original idea of Trump and gave the wall a second purpose; serving as a prison where “11 million undocumented people will be processed, classified, and/or deported.” The designers even added a viewpoint for US citizens to walk up stairs onto the platform and look down onto the other side to complete the “gorgeous perversity.”
