    The Design Museum in London has named the Teeter-Totter Wall, an interactive installation that allowed children based in both the USA and Mexico to play together across the border wall, as the Beazley Design of the Year 2020. The project designed by architects Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello with Colectivo Chopeke, created a place where children from both countries could connect playfully through three bright pink see-saws.

    The three bright pink ‘teeter-totters’ (seesaws) were slotted into gaps in the steel boundary wall by designers from both sides of the border and installed for just under twenty minutes on July 28, 2019. Although a temporary installation, the event lived on through footage shared virally on social media.
