It is a mix of public and private spaces, incorporating residential apartments, a multi-use games area, and a centralized car park. The building is dressed in a rich tapestry of ornament.

Honor Award 2017

Building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico was a focal point of the 2016 U.S. presidential election; the idea has turned attention to the border between the two countries but ignores the point that they coexist in a complex synergy. Designed in collaboration with FR-EE / Fernando Romero Enterprise in response to the official theme, “Utopia by Design,” “Border City” is the Mexico installation at the first annual London Design Biennale.
