Open Border

The recent installation Open Border is a long wall, designed by the Dutch Atelier Ari, placed perpendicular to the skating trail on the Assiniboine River in Winnipeg, Canada.

The red, almost four-metre high barrier spans the river, creates a strong border, and is clearly visible in the contrasting white snowy landscape. The double wall was clad with red insulating strips that keep the cold wind out.

The structure was fixed to the ground via simple, red painted wooden structures that were covered by PVC slabs
