The wall–an item of separation, division–a partition between two things. A threshold between one side and another, but also an assemblage of parts. A collection of self-similar units that only work when supported by another. “Our Great Great Wall” gauges the political stature of our built environment. It's a reminder of the inherent political significance of our designed objects and spaces and is a call to action for designers use forms and spaces to participate in the political discourse.
