Bringing attention to the spaces along the borders of the 10 ASEAN nations, the Borderless Competition aims to improve their existing conditions. While there has been much discussion about achieving a “borderless” condition through economic and legislative intiatives, currently, the actual border spaces themselves have been neglected and are lagging behind these developments. For many people inhabiting these areas, the border remains a place of division and uncertainty.

The competition seeks proposals that focus on local border sites, where specific cultural, social and ecological issues can be addressed while engaging in larger spatial and institutional scales. The goal is to demonstrate how architecture can re-define the future of ASEAN borders. The deadline for submissions is March 30. For more information, please visit here.
