THE BRIEF The main purpose is to design an architectural project able to transform a crossing border chosen by the participant, to join cultures, peoples, and create a vital spot for economic growth for all sides. Transform the crossing border into a place that unites and promotes cultural diversity. At the same time, the project creates a friendly atmosphere for the encounter of two or more nations. Participants have the challenge to develop an attractive programme for business and different economic sectors. Participants are free to choose the (1) location of the border, (2) the programme, (3) the scale, and (4) the scope of the project. The border location could be a specific international crossing by land or an entire region that affects multiple cities or towns. Participants are also able to explore and choose sea borders between nations, or “air borders” located at international airports. Every line that divides two or more countries could be considered a location able to be chosen for the participants to develop the project.
