SAPL announces winners of the CBDX: BORDERLANDS competition



The University of Calgary?s School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape (SAPL) has announced the three prize winners, honorable mentions and finalists of its international design competition, CBDX: BORDERLANDS.
Participants submitted design proposals that displayed a concern for healing the natural world and diminishing class differences by promoting equity. The entries focused on complex and unexpected spaces like the nuclear borderlands of Fukushima, gerrymandering within U.S. district borders, protected natural spaces encroached upon by mining or logging, repurposing the ruins in Wadi Salib for communal benefit, lessening the divide between slum and town in Mumbai, and neutralizing the destruction wreaked by volumes of moving sand in the Great Lut Desert in Iran.

The winning entries addressed difficult topics. Sonny Meng Qi Xu created ?Borderhood?, a design intervention for the US-Canada border that includes retiring the 8000+ border monuments and replacing them with First-Aid Beacons designed to accommodate migrants and asylum seekers. The Beacons would provide navigation and necessities such as gloves, food, jackets and blankets. Xu?s proposal also takes advantage of existing railway tracks adjacent to the border to create movable units for temporary housing, medical care, daycare and other amenities.
