US-Mexico Border Turns Playground with Seesaws!

US-Mexico Border Turns Playground with Seesaws!

The United States President Donald Trump regularly makes controversial comments on the US-Mexico border. At the cost of tax-payers money worth billions, his government has installed big-walls on the border to stop the illegal migration of people.

However, this project is yet to get completed. But all of a sudden the border of the US-Mexico turned into a playground at Sunland park. An architecture professor at the University of California came up with the idea of setting up seesaws on the steel border and this is attracting children and adults. In fact, the professor had thought about this design about a decade ago and it took a decade for him to execute it.

The video of children playing seesaws is shared on Instagram and in no time the video has gone viral. The netizens appreciated the California professor for this gesture which is the need of the hour.

One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled with joy, excitement, and togetherness at the borderwall. The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. - Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side. Amazing thanks to everyone who made this event possible like Omar Rios @colectivo.chopeke for collaborating with us, the guys at Taller Herrería in #CiudadJuarez for their fine craftsmanship, @anateresafernandez for encouragement and support, and everyone who showed up on both sides including the beautiful families from Colonia Anapra, and @kerrydoyle2010, @kateggreen , @ersela_kripa , @stphn_mllr , @wakawaffles, @chris_inabox and many others (you know who you are). #raelsanfratello #borderwallasarchitecture
