DOMO ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN - Proposal for "trump's mexican wall" to be built from 750,000 containers.
DOMO ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN has put forward the idea of "Trump's Mexican Wall" to be constructed from 750,000 containers as a 'people' and 'eco' friendly solution to the controversial plan by the US President.
Francisco Llado and Robert Moehring of Domo Architecture and Design don’t believe their work is political either, as they design a 2,000 mile long wall along the Mexican border, to be built out of shipping containers. They told the website Real Deal:
“This is an eco-friendly, sustainable solution,” principal Francisco Llado said. It would require 750,000 recycled shipping containers, which could be donated, he said….“There are other ways to build a border that is friendly and open instead of building a concrete wall,” Moering added.
They are also quoted in a recent post in Politico, where they describe the wall as having eco-friendly features like solar panels and even micro-housing, again stressing that their work is not political.
