Um muro cor-de-rosa para Donald Trump

Luis Barragán, o arquitecto mexicano que é um dos nomes mais influentes da arquitectura do século XX, inspirou os seus conterrâneos do Estudio 3.14 numa paródia à proposta de Donald Trump para construir um muro na fronteira entre os Estados Unidos e o México.
Conhecido pelos seus planos de cores vivas inspirados na arquitectura tradicional mexicana, Barragán é o ponto de partida para este projecto de arquitectura que propõe uma desmesurada barreira cor-de-rosa capaz de responder aos desejos do candidato republicano às eleições norte-americanas, que quer um muro “grande e lindo”, “impenetrável, físico, alto, poderoso” muro para diminuir a imigração mexicana ilegal...

Trump's Mexican border wall envisioned
as Barragán-inspired pink barrier


Mexican firm Estudio 3.14 has visualised the "gorgeous perversity" of US presidential candidate Donald Trump's plan to build a wall along the countries' border.
In response to the controversial proposal, a group of interns at the Guadalajara-based studio came up with a conceptual design that would celebrate Mexico's architectural heritage.
The giant solid barrier would run 1,954 miles (3,145 kilometres) uninterrupted from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico, and be painted bright pink in the spirit of the 20th-century buildings by Pritzker Prize-winning Mexican architect Luis Barragán.
"Because the wall has to be beautiful, it has been inspired in by Luis Barragán's pink walls that are emblematic of Mexico," said the studio. "It also takes advantage of the tradition in architecture of megalomaniac wall building." (dezeen.com, October 2016)
