“In order to achieve "borderless",we must understand the space of the borders themselves.” - Luke Yeung The Borderless Competition is seeking solutions that can demonstrate how architecture can re-define the future of ASEAN borders. By focusing on local border sites, specific cultural, social and ecological issues can be addressed while engaging in larger spatial and institutional scales. For many people inhabiting these areas, the border remains a place of division and uncertainty. Outdated infrastructure affects their sense of security and livelihood. Socio-economic and cultural differences lead to misunderstandings and inequalities. In some areas, borders have become spaces of conflict and dispute. While there has been much discussion about achieving a "borderless" condition through economic and legislative initiatives, currently, the actual border spaces themselves have been neglected and are lagging behind these developments.
