Border installation wins design award

A see-saw installation straddling a section of the border wall near Ciudad Juarez has won the London Design Museum’s award for best design of 2020.

The project was nominated along with 70 others, including a 3D rendering of the virus causing Covid-19 and Lee Ha Jun’s set design from the Oscar-winning film “Parasite.”

“We are totally surprised by this unexpected honor, which we share with the Juarez based art collective, @colectivo.chopeke,” the project’s designer, Ronald Rael, said on his Instagram account. “Most importantly, it comes at a time when we are hopeful for change and that we start building more bridges instead of walls.” The London museum called the installation “an attempt to create unity at the politically divisive border.”
