Mexican architect proposes stunning purple bridge in defiant response to Trump's border wall

, a firm named for its founder Ricardo Legorreta, defies Trump’s vision directly, with a bold purple bridge at one of the busiest border crossings between the two countries. The proposed bridge is an enclosed 14,788-square-foot pedestrian walkway, which would connect the the existing Tijuana International Airport in Mexico with a new airport terminal in San Diego, just across the border. “The US-Mexico Border is the busiest in the world and one of the most fortified ones,” said Legorreta. “The facility is built on a plot located in Otay, San Diego, to expedite the crosswalk at the US-Mexico border. The cross border needed to have a direct connection between the migration departments of both countries to mitigate traffic in the current checkpoint, this way Otay Cross Border Xpress becomes an unprecedented contribution to the region.”
