OUR PROPOSAL IS A BORDER CITY. ]IN-BETWEEN[ IS A 150-FOOT WIDE, 200-FOOT TALL INHABITABLE WALL COMPRISED OF ARCHITECTURAL VERNACULAR REPRESENTING ALL CULTURES OF THE WORLD THROUGH OCCUPIABLE SPACES THAT CREATES THE DENSE URBAN ENVIRONMENT. A RESIDENT OF ]IN-BETWEEN[ LIVES EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE THROUGH THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE WORLD AND ENGAGES CITIZENS OF ALL PLACES THROUGH COPIOUS PUBLIC SPACES. UNLIKE THE DIVIDING LINE THAT HAS BEEN BORDERS OF THE PAST AND PRESENT, THE ]IN-BETWEEN[ OPERATES AS AN INCLUSIVE NEUTRAL CITY. AMERICAN IMPOSED TRAVEL BANS CAN PREVENT FAMILIES FROM REUNITING, HOWEVER, THE LOCATIONS ALONG THE BORDER CAN ALLOW SAFE MEETING SPACES FOR FAMILIES TO VISIT ONE ANOTHER AND RETURN TO THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES. MUCH LIKE THE HASKELL FREE LIBRARY AND OPERA HOUSE ALONG THE CANADIAN-AMERICAN BORDER WHICH SERVES AS AN INTERMEDIATE SPACE FOR FAMILIES UNABLE TO OTHERWISE MEET, ]IN-BETWEEN[ IS AN ENTIRE CITY WHICH AIMS TO SUBVERT THE UNFORTUNATE POLITICS OF THE US IMPOSED TRAVEL BAN.

THE BORDER WALL HAS BEEN PRESENTED AS ESSENTIAL TO SECURING THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN BORDER, IT HAS BEEN PROVEN TO LACK THE EFFECTIVENESS DESIRED. THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AIMS TO SECURE THE CANADIAN-AMERICAN BORDER AS WELL, BUT NOT WITH THE SAME VIGOR. THE ]IN-BETWEEN[ HAS BEEN PLACED ALONG THE CANADIAN-AMERICAN BORDER AS A TESTAMENT TO THE ALTERNATIVE INTENTION OF THE EXCLUSIONARY BORDER WALL, AND DEFIES THE PURPOSE BY PROVIDING PLACES OF INCLUSION AND RESPECT ALONG THE MOST DIVERGING NATIONS.
