The President of USA, Donald Trump has a plan to build a controversial wall along the country’s border with Mexico. No-To-Scale, one of the design offices in Malaysia proposed the idea of harmony as a revolutionary approach for the US-Mexico border, which takes the form of a 1,954 mile-long dining table.
Yes, a long dining table that allows participants to share their food together. No-To-Scale declares that this border is cost-effective since they recommend the participants to bring their own chairs.
